MALVERN, Penn. — Full-service chauffeured transportation company Celebrity Limousine recently welcomed seasoned industry professional, Chuck Psotka, as its new director of business development and affiliate relations.

With an extensive background of providing a high level of professionalism and service for clients, Psotka’s core values align with Celebrity’s mission of offering chauffeur services with unrivaled attention to detail.

“Given the trends in the industry towards bulk, commoditized transportation and away from personalized, professional service as a means of maintaining long-term client relationships, it’s refreshing to find that Celebrity still practices old-school values and customer service standards that are aligned with my own,” Psotka said in a press release. “It is this common focus and my experience that will enable me to work with the company’s team to grow the business and maintain its core values of high quality, professional ground transportation.”

Psotka brings to Celebrity a depth and breadth of experience that is somewhat unique. When he entered the industry in 1974, the factory-built Cadillac Fleetwood 75 limousine was the standard vehicle, Town Cars were few and far between, and stretches were nearly non-existent. During his various roles at Metropolitan Limousine from 1975 to 2016, Psotka helped in the company’s growth from a three-car, three-person operation, into an organization of 75 vehicles and 160 employees, with a platinum account list and worldwide affiliations.

As the industry evolved, he helped integrate and deploy new technologies into the daily operations of the company, further enhancing the service delivered to clients. Most recently, Psotka was the affiliate manager at CTI Transportation of Houston, where he strengthened affiliate relationships supporting the company’s clients.

“Chuck is a very professional and knowledgeable person in the industry,” said Dennis Adams, CEO and founder of Celebrity Limousine. “He has been in the business for over 40 years, and I’ve known him for at least 20. I’m thrilled to now have Chuck as part of the Celebrity team and know that his experience in the industry will serve both our clients and our company well.”

About Celebrity Limousine: Established in 1991, Celebrity Limousine started off with just one car, serving clients in Greater Philadelphia and Wilmington, Delaware. Since then, Celebrity has grown to include more than 25 vehicles, including sedans like the BMW 740 Li x, SUVs, Executive Sprinters, minibuses, and motorcoaches, all housed in a 12,000-square-foot building. The company also offers private jets for leisure and corporate travel through its Celebrity Jet Charter business. Celebrity won the 2012 LCT Operator of the Year Award in the 51+ vehicle category.
