NEW YORK, Nov. 14, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Carmel Car and Limousine Service announced today they have received the prestigious 2016 Limo Operator of the Year award from the Taxicab, Limousine & Paratransit Association (TLPA), Rockville, MD.
David Friedman, Carmel's COO, accepted the award on behalf of his dedicated staff. He noted that a building fire caused the company to relocate and service was restored after a 14 hours' disruption. "My main concern throughout this emergency situation was for our customers. Because we are a 24/7 operation it was important to be up and running as soon as possible," he said. "With our dedicated staff, we were able to overcome what could have become an even more disastrous situation," he concluded.

"Being named Limo Operator of the Year by TLPA is a true honor," said Dr. Avik Kabessa, CEO/Chairman of Carmel.
