The limousine industry’s leading consultant, educator, trainer, writer and mentor, died Aug. 11 at age 53.
According to Limousine Digest:
Tom was a beloved industry icon who was well known for his many achievements and accomplishments including his popular chauffeur training videos, his 20 Group meetings and other training sessions, and consulting and working closely with some of the best and most distinguished companies in the business. He also served as the executive director of the NLA and as the education coordinator for The Limo Digest Show.
Reston Limousine President and CEO Kristina Bouweiri had the privilege of being his friend, and shares this about Tom:
He was an amazing guy. I attended his workshops each year at the limousine convention. He was an amazing speaker and had vast knowledge of the business. He started these “Limousine 20 Groups,” about 8 years go. When I hired Tony Simon, as General Manager in 2006 I immediately signed him up for one of Tom Mazzaâ€™s groups. This group was instrumental in teaching Tony about the industry. Tom was a huge advocate of Reston Limousine and on his travels around the country he always spoke highly about our company. When I ran into strangers at the limousine convention they would say to me “I know you because of Tom Mazza, he told us all about your wonderful company!!!â€ You could say that Tom Mazza put our company on the map with our industry. He was a friend, a mentor and we will never forget his impact on our lives, our industry and our country.
