CARSON, Calif. --- Former sales and marketing executive Richard Murillo of American Limousine Sales announced Sept. 12 his new sales post at Coach West in Carson.

Murillo, citing an interest in expanding into the bus and Sprinter van markets, joined Coach West on Aug. 4 after 11 years at American Limousine Sales, a limousine builder and seller based in Lynwood and Los Angeles.  

“It's been on my mind for a while,” Murillo told LCT. "I have a lot of admiration and respect for the entire team at American Limousine Sales. I needed to offer clients more than limousines and party buses. Coach West will allow me to do that with different options."

Thanks to a partnership with Executive Coach Builders, Murillo and Coach West can offer a wide variety of bus and limousine vehicles.

"I am really excited to be part of a family oriented team that offers professional vehicles to the industry," said Murillo, a regular exhibitor at LCT trade shows known for posting and picturing exotic vehicles for sale on Facebook. "I will miss the gull wing doors and exotic limos, but I know that time has passed. The bus industry is huge with a lot to offer clients."

Murrillo says he looks forward to embracing the new team and family at Coach West and learning from them. "I have been in the limo industry for 15 years, and now it's time to plant my feet in the bus and Sprinter market as well."
