Company Profile: Valera Global
What it does:
Valera Global provides limousine transportation services to Fortune 500 executives, politicians, entertainers, and high-end clientele in New York City, other major US cities, and in Europe.
Why it's growing:
Growth is a result of client recovery after the severe business slowdown that took place in NYC after 9/11. Recovery took three years, after which the company began to grow once more at its accustomed rate of about 15 percent per year.
The Valera Global Training Program requires 200 hours of initial driver training and screening, and supports initial candidates through a mentoring program and a safety/security program. Candidates take verbal, written, and driving tests throughout training, and continue training throughout their careers with the company.
