Chicago operator Anuj Patel has some relevant advice on leadership and how to improve it in your company.
EVERETT, Mass. — Scott Solombrino, president and CEO of Dav El/Boston Coach Chauffeured Transportation Network, is leaving his position after a 43-year career in the limousine industry.
Solombrino, who founded his first limousine company in 1978 while a freshman at Suffolk University, will focus on his leadership roles within the ground transportation industry and write a memoir of his life in the industry. Under Solombrino’s leadership, Dav El/Boston Coach grew to become one of the country’s largest privately held chauffeured transportation companies.
Solombrino will remain a strong force in the ground transportation industry internationally, through his work as president of the Allied Leadership Council for the Global Business Travel Association (GBTA) and as a member of its board of directors, positions he has held for more than 20 years.
The decision not to renew his current employment agreement with Dav El/Boston Coach was made after a long and deliberative process. In addition to his focus as an industry leader and icon, Solombrino plans to write a memoir detailing his life in the industry. He had strong praise for Dav El/Boston Coach and is very optimistic about the company’s future.
“This is a decision I am making for positive reasons and I look forward to the future,” Solombrino said. “I leave Dav El/Boston Coach with great pride, knowing our team is operating the finest chauffeured transportation company in the world. Our standards have set the bar and our reputation for impeccable services are unmatched in the ground transportation sector. I want to thank David and Derek Marcou and all of our employees, and want them to know I have full confidence they will continue leading this company toward a great future. I wish everyone the best as I move on to the next chapter in life.”
Solombrino’s positive impact on the industry was never more evident than in 2002, when the U.S. Congress and President Bush unanimously passed legislation expanding the rights of chauffeured transportation operators nationwide. His continued dedication, discipline, and hard work contributed to the passage of the landmark legislation on behalf of the industry he worked for throughout his career. Now, he looks forward to telling his story.
“It’s been an incredible ride in an amazing industry. I have so many positive experiences to share and have gained a unique perspective on life through this work. I now have time to write that story,” Solombrino added.
