Dulles, Virginia: Reston Limousine and Travel Service, the Dulles corridor-based transportation company headed by President and CEO Kristina Bouweiri, recently received the prestigious Image Award at the nation’s largest limousine show and conference held at Atlantic City. The annual Limo Digest Show brings together thousands of owners, fleet representatives, and affiliated businesses for the country’s premier limousine fleet providers trade show. Bouweiri, who owns the 140-vehicle fleet Reston Limousine with her husband, William, was also tapped as the industry’s first woman fleet owner to speak on the show’s State of the Industry panel.
Founded in 1990, Reston Limousine has continued to grow its customer base of public, private and government clients, and its portfolio of services. Likewise, revenues have increased, more than doubling since 2003. Despite the economy, this past year proved successful, with posted revenues of $16.6 million, topping a projected $14 million.
Through resourceful and continued marketing and public relations, Reston Limousine has effectively intensified its position as a major player in the marketplace. For Bouweiri’s company, the market includes not only the metropolitan area and across the country, but the ability to secure global travel arrangements for her clients. Bouweiri commented, “Rather than catching the wave of increasing business opportunities, we feel we have been a part of creating that wave.â€
Using a multi-layered approach to creating Reston Limousine’s image over the past 21 years, Bouweiri has utilized traditional advertising, the Internet, social networking, and numerous public relations opportunities to identify her company as the prime choice for public, private, and governmental transportation needs.
Reston Limousine also has a proud legacy of community service, providing support to many area organizations. Giving back to the community, Bouweiri serves on boards of businesses and not-for-profit groups, and frequently mentors women entrepreneurs, while assisting students at her alma mater, George Washington University.
