SECAUCUS, NJ -- EmpireCLS Worldwide Chauffeured Services, the global leader in luxury ground transportation and executive car services, announced today that the company has been invited to join the prestigious supplier portfolio at Virtuoso, the leading international travel agency network specializing in luxury and experiential travel.

"Virtuoso's acceptance process is incredibly selective, so becoming a preferred supplier is a true honor," said EmpireCLS Chairman and CEO David Seelinger. "Given the reputation Virtuoso member advisors and travel suppliers have for outstanding dedication to their clients, this is a recognition of our own bespoke approach to chauffeured service."

Virtuoso agencies sell more than (US) $15.5 billion annually, making the network the most significant player in luxury travel.

Acceptance into Virtuoso is part of EmpireCLS's strategy to expand its presence in the luxury travel arena, spearheaded by Executive Director of Sales and Marketing Gary Stevens, a 30-year travel industry veteran. "Further building upon and servicing the travel agency community is close to my heart, as I have worn the advisor hat and fully understand their needs," said Stevens.
