The annual Limousine Association of New Jersey fundraiser has long served as a role model for industry togetherness.
David Kinney, owner and CEO of API Global in Sacramento, was elected the new president of the GCLA, succeeding Orange County operator Kevin Illingworth who served the last three years.
As an operator in the state capital and the outgoing treasurer of the GCLA, Kinney will bring his hometown familiarity and leadership experience to the group's legislative and regulatory efforts. In fact, the first major GCLA event in the New Year will be its lobbying day at the State Capitol on Feb. 8.
