IN THE DRIVER’S SEAT
M&V Limousines Ltd. provides transportation to a wide range of clients, from corporate executives and newlyweds to sports teams and schools. “We have one of the largest fleets in New York. and one of the most diverse fleets in the U.S. It is our mission to provide our clients with a world-class transportation experience,” says president and CEO Mark J. Vigliante. This mission goes all the way back to the company’s founding, and Vigliante’s belief in differentiating his company within the market. Today, M&V sets itself apart by providing unique vehicles like a Pink Barbie-edition Mini Cooper limo with a hot tub. After every trip, M&V reaches out to the customer to make sure they enjoyed their ride.
Quick Tip: “You need to be a good teacher, because delegating correctly is important. You cannot do it alone.”
Though M&V has faced challenges over the course of its journey, Vigliante says hard work has been his key to success. “I work long hours, and when I see that we are falling short on answering emails or that the phone is ringing and my staff needs help, I jump in and we get it done. I’m all about getting the job done no matter what, and the staff feels that energy,” he says. To stay focused, Vigliante creates yearly goals, and tries not to look too far ahead. For now, the company plans on developing three new lines of business via the internet.
