MARLTON, N.J. — Bobit Business Media has selected a team of administrative professionals to handle the logistics and services of the National Limousine Association.

BBM administers the back office functions of the NLA based on a 14-year management contract that the NLA has with BBM. BBM and the NLA board of directors are looking for a permanent executive director and will further review candidates March 15 in Las Vegas before the 2015 International LCT Show.

The new team will ensure delivery of all services required of the contract.
