The Minority Limousine Operators of America (MLOA) said Sept. 28 it has named Philip Jagiela, a former NLA executive director and current administrative head of multiple state associations, as its new director of sales and marketing.

Jagiela succeeds executive director, Dr. Yvonne LaMar, who resigned her position, which she held for three years. MLOA President Maurice Brewster (Mosaic Global Transportation) said Jagiela's appointment is effective Oct. 1.

“We are sad to confirm and announce Dr. Yvonne LaMar has given us her letter of resignation and effective immediately, is no longer associated with the Minority Limousine Operators of America,” said Brewster in a statement. “Yvonne over the past three and a half years focused on the training and development of our membership.

"More specifically, Yvonne focused on certification training by conducting webinars.  She was responsible for our association winning the LCT 2016 Association of the Year Award.  We thank her for her service and will miss her.  Our entire board sends her best wishes for whatever lies in her future,” added Brewster.

Jagiela is a former Philadelphia-area limousine operator who served as executive director of the National Limousine Association from October 2012 to January 2015.  Jagiela also served for many years as President of the Philadelphia Regional Limousine Association before taking on the NLA role.

Since leaving the NLA, Jagiela has worked as executive director of the Florida Limousine Association, Virginia Limousine Association and the Colorado Limousine Association.
