Remember the old days of executive business travel? You would be picked up at the office or home in a stretch limo, then taken to the helipad for the trip to the airport for your flight. In the air, you’re either treated to champagne in a first class recliner or a quick hop on the glamorous corporate Lear jet. Once you land, the helicopter takes you to that big meeting or to corporate headquarters. But that was the 1990s.
Gone are the days of corporate excess and splurging on high profile treatment for executives traveling for meetings and other company events. In this economy, corporations are spending money responsibly with an eye on the bottom line more than ever. With this goal in mind, companies are looking for more affordable transportation options for their executives and clients. Businesses need to be accountable about travel expenditures without sacrificing quality.
One company that exemplifies this concept is Edward Slinin through his grown from the ground up business, Corporate Transportation Group. From one car in 1982 to over 1400 vehicles presently, this is a man who understands that frugality is wise, but not at the expense of quality. He has embraced the need for superior, affordable transportation.
Edward Slinin has primed CTG over the years to provide car service and serve the transportation needs for thousands of clients in over 450 cities nationwide and globally. He has acquired – through blood, sweat and tears – a fleet of town cars, limousines, vans and large buses to serve every need of CTG’s valued clients.
Not one to rest on his laurels, Edward Slinin has strived to improve upon his company’s excellent customer service. He has recognized that it is essential for a company to be dynamic and always make time for communication with clients. Now, CTG is one of the first transportation companies of its size to feature hybrid vehicles and incorporate “green” business policies.
The business model that Edward Slinin developed and employed to make CTG successful as a start up continues today. By utilizing professional, expert drivers on an independent contractor basis, he was able to accomplish two goals. First, Mr. Slinin has made CTG a household name throughout the world. Second, he has drawn together a group of contractors who are equally devoted to serving the transportation needs of valued clients.
As an immigrant from Russia himself, Edward Slinin recognizes and continues to support the interests of people from all over the world. He began CTG with a dream and hearty ambition, and is able to pass it on through his network of independent contractors. Mr. Slinin engages in a stringent selection process to ensure that his affiliates are as dedicated and hard working as he was as a determined immigrant bent on achieving the American Dream.
