It seems Lionel has been meeting people at airports all his life!
It started in his native New Zealand where, as an inbound tour operator he arranged independent and group tours for visitors from the United States, Japan, Europe—from all parts of the World in fact - to travel around beautiful New Zealand. When they arrived, there he was to meet them at the airport and to get them on their way.
In 1990 he met the love of his life and immigrated to Washington DC to start his new life as a meeting planner for Joy’s non-profit organization, Women in Government, which provided issue educational and leadership training programs for elected women state legislators. So there was Lionel, once again, meeting legislators at airports, this time all around the United States,
As a professional tour operator and promoter, Newton International Ltd, also had several clients requiring specialized tour programs to various international destinations.
From the American Rose Society’s tri-annual World International conventions and to visit those country’s rose gardens (the next tour in 2018 is to Scandanavia) - to Women In Government’s International educational tours to meet with foreign Governments and their parliaments and legislators, and to arranging inspection tours for company owners studying the latest technology in commercial laundry operations overseas, Lionel 's Newton International Ltd has operated tours to all parts of the World.
And once again, there was Lionel meeting his clients, but this time at foreign airports!
On moving to Tucson to avoid Washington’s weather—too cold in the winter and too humid in the summer, Lionel started driving for Towncars Ltd and after ten years meeting their clients at—where else? - Tucson Airport—he had the opportunity to own his own Lincoln Towncar and to work, once again for himself but in cooperation with Towncars Ltd.
As a resident of Oro Valley, Lionel is pleased to specialize in the Northwest side of Tucson, and is no more than a few minutes away for any last minute trips or emergencies.
Situations change, and Lionel is now associated with UNO Town Cars and in addition to still operating OVTC, he also drives for them.
Lionel looks forward to seeing old clients and meeting new ones. Call him when you need a ride!
