Q&A with Kathy, President

What is one of your signature services? How is it performed?

Check-in and check-out take less than five minutes. No long lines to wait in to park and get the shuttle, and no crowded shuttle with luggage to have to walk over in order to get in and out of the shuttle bus.

Besides making clients happy, what do you like most about your job?

I love that we are a local, family-owned business and that our employees are all like family to us. Our employees stay with us for a long time, the shortest length of time anyone has been with us is 10 years.

When and how did you first develop a passion for your work?

Our family's passion has always been the airline industry. When we started Exec Park it was to fill a need that existed for off-airport parking options at Mitchell Field. Over the 35 years that we have been serving the parking needs of travelers using Mitchell Field, we have become friends with the many customers that have been parking with us year after year. [They] have been recommending us to their family and friends time after time.

Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover?

We are the oldest local, family-owned and operated parking facility at Mitchell Field, and ... we take care of our customers and their cars as if they were are own. We are not perfect, but we hope that if we should make a mistake, customers will trust that we will do whatever we can to make it right.

Beverly Hills Limousine doesn't service the ritzy California neighborhood, but its star-studded resumé of past clientele, which boasts marquee names such as Elton John and Tom Hanks, proves that it doesn't have to: Beverly Hills finds its way into the chauffers' backseats. But the star treatment doesn't end with the star. Airport commuters, wedding and prom parties, and large groups of circus clowns trying to break from stereotype all receive the same professionalism from polished and punctual drivers, who pull up at clients' front doors in corporate sedans and a fleet of Chrysler and Hummer limos equipped with interior bars and sound and video systems. The drivers then navigate the roads while passengers sink in and enjoy the ride.

The Hilton Milwaukee City Center Parking Garage exemplifies the city's commitment to convenient downtown parking. It also reflects the ideals of the hotel to which it's linked: it provides a safe and secure place for the car to rest and can guarantee that it won't be placed next door to a touring heavy-metal band. For drivers, the process is as simple as pulling into one of the lot's 863 spaces and then going about their way.

Having honed his aviation skills in helicopter cockpits for 45+ years, the head pilot at Midwestern Helicopter leads a team of FAA–certified pilots in performing helicopter tours, charters, and pilot instruction. They steer a fleet of three Robinson R-44s and two R-22s over cityscapes and country vistas with photographers, pollinators, surveyors, or sightseers onboard, continuing a crash- and speeding-ticket-free record begun with the company's inception four years ago. The flight team acquaints new flyers with immediate actual flight experience during introductory flights and helps students to achieve private, commercial, and flight-instructor certification during FAA courses. As authorized merchants of Robinson aircraft, they can also hawk helicopters or perform maintenance on various models inside heated hangars without having to first notify the aircraft's next of kin.
