BEST-VIP Chauffeured Worldwide of Orange County, California is adding two industry veterans to their growing Motorcoach and Group Destination Support Team!
SANTA ANA, CA: Brian Webber is a native of Southern California with over 20 years’ experience in motorcoach transportation. For ten years, Brian led the Western Region sales development for Coach America, significantly diversifying the organization’s revenue streams. Over the last 6 years Brian was the “Director of Sales” for the largest motorcoach supplier in San Diego. Brian brings strong industry relationships and impeccable organizational skills to the growing BEST-VIP team as our new Director of Business Development.
“I am super excited to be a part of Robert’s Team at BEST-VIP. Robert, Todd and their staff have done a great job establishing a culture dedicated to safety, quality and 100% dedication to customer service. The service level here is over the top and I am confident my clients are going to love the quality of service we provide”
Brian is happily married to his best friend Gretchen, who also works in the hospitality industry. They share their beautiful, five-year-old daughter Amelia. While he enjoys working with the BEST, Brian is also an avid sports fan who greatly enjoys the outdoors, hiking and traveling with his family.
Hakan Yavuz is a native of Istanbul who studied economics in college and has been in Southern California for more than 15 years. In that time, he was the “Director of Operations” for the 7th largest motorcoach company in the United States. Hakan prides himself on being efficient while focusing on maximizing fleet utilization and has excellent insight on environments that support over 100 chauffeurs while being extremely familiar with CHP, DOT and FMCSA regulations, which is sure to be of endless value to the BEST-VIP team as our new Director of Bus Operations. He has said,
“Safety is the name of this game. I love motorcoaches and working with the drivers, but at BEST-VIP they are not just drivers, they are true chauffeurs. I am excited to work here with what Robert Vaughan has built. I am amazed at how clean they keep every piece of their equipment — I love it!”
Hakan is happily married to Sheila, a fashion designer, and they share their beautiful six-year-old daughter, Mila, who loves art. When away from the office, Hakan and his family enjoy bike riding along Venice Beach, exploring Santa Monica and enjoying all the sights and sounds of California.
Robert Vaughan, Founder of BEST-VIP, stated “our coach business has been steadily growing since 2008 and with the integration and acquisition of our nearest competitor more than 3 years ago, we needed to add some depth to position ourselves for our next growth stage. Brian and Hakan each bring excellent experience and value to the BEST-VIP team. Brian is already helping us grow the sales side, while Hakan is bringing new safety, efficiency and regulatory experience. Brian and Hakan, combined with our seasoned team, will help us grow naturally and through acquisitions”.
