GET TO KNOW SOME ACTIVE MEMBERS Many of the Fast 40 already have been volunteering to serve as speakers on panels for shows and as columnists for articles in the magazine. Here is a quick look at some individuals you'll likely see in upcoming Fast 40 events. Danny Bacher, Topper Worldwide, Marietta, GA Topper Worldwide was started by Danny's father in 1996.

He has participated in past Fast 40 panels at the LCT Leadership Summit in Miami Beach and LCT Show East in Atlantic City. Mona Marandy, MonLisa Limousine, Los Angeles, CA Growing up under the tutelage of her father, Mona was a quick study to the limo business, gaining valuable experi- ence early on while working her way up the company her father started. She says of her first moves into the indus- try, "My biggest challenge at first was to deal with 'old school' mentalities. It was obviously very difficult at first because I had to learn the business so I had to pay my dues." Now MonaLisa Limousine is a 14-vehicle fleet providing luxury transportation throughout the greater Los Angeles area. Marandy continues to come out with new features and upgrades to make sure her company is giving the best service possible. Michael Campbell, Grace Limousine, Manchester, NH Campbell took over the family business in 2009, building it into one of the best luxury ground transportation providers in the North- east region. He also is a board director of the National Limousine Association and frequent speaker at LCT Shows and events. Campbell brings a fresh perspective on the industry. His company has won multiple awards such as the New Hamp- shire Business Review Journal's Transportation Company of the Year and the U.S. Small Business Association's Family-Owned Business of the Year. Dan Sutich, Perfect Chauffeur, Montvale, NJ Sutich first got his start in the industry work- ing at his father's Perfect Limo Service in Montvale. He soon branched out to start his own software company called Perfect Chauf- feur LLC. Specializing in customer opera- tions management and technology, Sutich will be one of the newer Fast 40 members speaking on the panel at the International LCT Show.
