I’m excited to honor Mark’s incredible legacy as we take Grace and Black Tie to the next level.
MANCHESTER, N.H. (PRWEB) June 18, 2019
Grace Limousine and Shuttle of Manchester, NH, announces its acquisition of Black Tie Limousine of Haverhill, MA. Black Tie’s President Mark Mollica will be retiring after thirty-six years of running the company. United by a common business culture, the two firms are powerhouses in the chauffeured car industry. The acquisition solidifies Grace as the best-in-class provider of ground transportation in New England. Clients of both companies will benefit from cutting-edge technology, superior customer service, and a combined fleet of late-model sedans, SUVs, limousines, and coaches.
Grace Limousine and Shuttle was founded by Ian Campbell, a disabled American veteran, in 1990. Grace is still family-owned and operated by Ian’s son Michael Campbell as president and CEO. Grace is known for its luxurious vehicles, excellent customer service, and strong commitment to community involvement. Campbell has overseen a healthy period of growth, both in terms of acquisitions and in worldwide reach. He remarked on the significance of this acquisition:
"I was so honored when Mark first called and asked me to consider acquiring Black Tie. I know how much this business means to Mark, to his family, and to his long-time employees. Our businesses have enjoyed many years of friendly rivalry, and we only made each other better. I’m excited to honor Mark’s incredible legacy as we take Grace and Black Tie to the next level."
Black Tie Limousine has been providing some of the best ground transportation in Boston, Eastern Massachusetts, and all over the world for over three decades. Since President Mark Mollica opened Black Tie in 1983, it has grown from a small operation to one of the most prominent limousine companies in Massachusetts. With an extensive fleet, an incredibly professional staff, and a large base of clients that extends across the globe, Black Tie enjoys one of the best reputations in the industry. Approaching four decades as Black Tie’s founder and president, Mollica began to consider retirement. He knew he would need to find a buyer equally as committed to excellence:
"It’s a comfort to know that Mike and the Grace team share the same focus on customer service and will continue that tradition. I am thrilled knowing that Black Tie will be in the very best of hands, which means the world to me."
Grace’s purchase of Black Tie establishes it as one of the largest chauffeured car/shuttle companies in the United States and in the top five for New England alone. More important than its size and scope is the superlative level of service that will be provided: the convenience and options of a large company with the personal touch of a much smaller one. Grace Limousine and Shuttle and Black Tie Limousine have had a shared approach to excellence established by their founders Ian Campbell and Mark Mollica, and Michael Campbell will carry on that legacy in the new firm as he has at Grace.
