Getaway TV Show
Reston Limousine took a star turn recently on a Washington DC episode of Getaway, one of Australiaâ€™s most popular travel programs.
One of the company’s limousines is shown taking the show’s host, Ben, and Larry Graves, a Barack Obama lookalike, to the World War II monument where stunned foreigners get their photo taken with a man who looks uncannily like the president of the United States.
See for yourself the incredible likeness and Reston Limo’s cameo on the online video posted Aug. 27 at Getaway’s Web site.
Reston Limousine CEO and President Kristina Bouweiri shared the spotlight with other power businesswomen in the Aug. 20th issue of Talk Loudoun’s Rendezvous e-zine.
The lead article on the e-zine covered the July 21 Mystics Networking Night, which featured Bouweiri, Mystics owner Sheila Johnson and DC Chamber of Commerce CEO Barbara Lang as speakers.
You can draw an analogy between a successful business and a successful sports team,” Bouweiri told Rendezvous. “They have similar challenges. It’s valid that women would be inspired.”
