Gary Everett, Owner and Managing Director
With more than 20 years of experience in the transportation and event management industry, Gary brings with him a wealth of knowledge in the areas of bus management, driver training, and safety standards.
Gary had been the owner and operator of Everett Tours and Fredericksburg Limousine for 14 years. These positions allowed him to gain hands-on experience in motor coach vehicle maintenance. This included driver training and testing, record keeping and tracking, company sales, and safety standards to meet the industry requirements.
As a sales, safety, and training director for Quicks Bus Company, Gary honed his skills and later managed successful driver training programs for two years. With this refined intelligence, he accepted the managing director position with EMSTAT, LLC., an event management, promotion, and production company.
Former President of The Virginia Limousine Association (Five Years)
Former President of Spotsylvania Volunteer Rescue Squad (Three Consecutive Terms)
Current Work With EMSTAT, LLC.
Gary’s present work with EMSTAT, LLC. covers driver training and certification. He recommends hiring policies and procedures, provides safety instructions, and acts as a consultant to transportation companies on management and maintenance programs. In the area of limousines and automobiles, he also demonstrates defensive driving, evasive maneuvers, pinning, and zone removal.
A well-rounded transportation specialist and consultant, Gary was able to lead EMSTAT, LLC. toward success. In addition, having co-authored current regulations for Limousines and Taxis, he has brought a level of expertise that will further enhance our company’s already high standards for transportation management.
Why Gary Founded EMSTAT, LLC.
For many years, Gary has attended various events for weekend entertainment. He often finds himself wondering why an event did not go as smoothly as it should’ve been. He also thought that if he managed the event himself, he would implement strategies that would ensure its success.
Gary often asks vendors why an event went that way. These interactions led him to a winery owner, and they eventually became good acquaintances. After some time of being friends, the winery owner then asked Gary to manage their festival.
The event was indeed a blast. No one was arrested and the complaint box was empty. This motivated Gary to continue his career in event management. Over the years, we have absorbed three small businesses and gone from handling one event to managing 24 to 28 events a year.
Gary’s work experience also pushed him to include transportation in the services offered by EMSTAT, LLC. After years of being with a team that orchestrates the secure transportation movements for dignitaries and other people, he felt that there was a need for quality transportation service, regardless of the event nature or size.
