Join us in the excitement as we announce that VIP is joining the LEADER Worldwide family!
VIP Airport Transportation has been serving clients in the Kansas City area for 25 years. The founders, Tom and Kathy Northrup have roots that are much like those of LEADER, with both companies starting with one car and a passion for service.
So much about VIP’s history and company culture fits with LEADER’s own. Similar to LEADER Worldwide CEO, Bruce Heinrich and VP, Yolanda Moore the Northrups are also Kansas City natives. Their love for the local community drove them to launch their company in the 1990s. From the early days up to now, they were personally involved in the daily operations, chauffeuring clients and cultivating the best trained staff available.
Kathy chose LEADER Worldwide to help continue their legacy, elevate their chauffeur service and enhance their client’s experience. Through the years, Tom and Kathy enjoyed providing personalized service to the city’s entrepreneurial families as well as playing host and concierge to Kansas City’s national and global visitors. “I loved picking up people from all of the world,” Kathy says.
VIP Airport Transportation’s legacy clients will now have access to a greater variety of vehicles, from our Mercedes-Benz Sprinters to our BMW 740LiX. LEADER also brings customers global transportation service in over 500 cities and numerous countries worldwide. Further enhancements to provide peace of mind to people who travel and those who arrange it include online booking through our website and integration with various corporate booking platforms. The chauffeur experience will be elevated as all LEADER chauffeurs are nationally certified through the proprietary PAX Online Chauffeur Training program. Clients can relax, knowing that every chauffeur has the best knowledge and ability to deliver quality service with every ride.
We are proud to welcome Kathy to our team, who will be personally reaching out to VIP clients to share the good news and welcome them to the LEADER family. Her expertise will be vital to making sure that they get the most value from this new union by exposure to all the benefits LEADER Worldwide offers.
Ride local. Ride LEADER.
