Alex Danza of Vonlane Named an Entrepreneur Of The Year 2018 Award Winner in Southwest Region by EY

Danza wins Emerging Retail and Consumer Products category with quest to disrupt the travel industry with luxury motor coach service

DALLAS--()--EY has announced that Alex Danza, founder and CEO of Vonlane, a luxury motor coach service, received the Entrepreneur Of the Year® 2018 Award in the Emerging Retail and Consumer Products category for the Southwest region. The award recognizes entrepreneurs who excel in areas such as innovation, financial performance, and personal commitment to their businesses and communities.

“I'm honored and humbled to accept this award and its validation that we’ve made riding the ‘bus’ a preferred mode of transportation,” notes Danza. “I’m incredibly proud of our more than 90 Vonlane employees who understand details matter and are making travel fun again by providing Texans — and soon other states — with a better way to travel.”

Vonlane was launched in May 2014 to give travelers an alternative to the delays and interruptions that accompany short-haul flights and the hassles of driving one’s own vehicle. The luxury coach service has been well-received by business travelers, such as attorneys, accountants, lobbyists, and service providers looking to bill their time in a quiet, comfortable, and productive environment. Leisure travelers love the luxurious, first-class travel experience at fares below the cost of commercial air travel.

Vonlane has expanded to serve the five largest Texas cities and offer more than 60 daily departures. “We owe our growth and success to our loyal passengers,” adds Danza. “We especially appreciate the folks who take that first ride and allow us to become their very own private jet on wheels.”

As a Southwest region award winner, Danza is eligible for consideration for the Entrepreneur Of The Year 2018 National Awards, which will be announced in November.
