Kirkley Hennessy/Hennessy Transportation and Lasso
Kirkley Hennessy’s entrance into the chauffeured ground transportation industry evolved out of his first business venture, Avalanche Entertainment, founded in 2001. Avalanche offered DJ services to brides, grooms, event planners and venues throughout Atlanta and the Southeast, establishing a large footprint in the wedding industry. With the increasing success of their DJ and videography packages, Avalanche expanded their offering to include a DJ, video and limousine package for weddings. Shortly after this addition, the limousine aspect spun off into its own company in 2011, and Hennessy Transportation was born. Launching in May is Kirkley’s newest venture, Lasso. The only on-demand car app managed by limousine operators.
Hennessy has grown into a full-service company for airport transportation, corporate planning and leisure travel, dedicating themselves to logistics and manifest management for groups throughout the world! Hennessy services over 1,200 airports in 500 cities across the globe, making them a brand trusted by Fortune 500 companies to manage their group transportation needs. With an in-house team of professionals dedicated to great customer service, backed with the state-of-the-art technology, you can count on Hennessy Transportation to manage, execute and oversee any project with your group’s manifest. And with reservation processes built with the client in mind, you go wherever you need to, 24 hours a day!
Today, Kirkley is directly involved in the day-to-day operations of the company: “We are a company that truly recognizes grass-roots marketing and customer service. Our clients continually support our model with feedback, and they deeply appreciate and admire our attention to detail. We work hard to keep our vehicles safe, clean and enjoyable. Whether it’s the smoke free environment, chilled water or Wi-Fi onboard, you’ll quickly realize we offer much more than transportation.”
Kirkley holds a seat on the Board of Directors for the Greater Atlanta Limousine Association (GALA). This association, comprised of approximately 20-30 limousine companies in the Atlanta area, aims to be the best reflection of the chauffeured transportation industry, as they service over 80% of Atlanta’s limousine and black car fleet.
Hennessy Transportation has been a finalist for “Best Operator of The Year” from Limousine Digest for the past 2 years and is once again nominated in 2013. Hennessy Transportation has also been voted “Best Transportation: Atlanta” from the Wedding Industry Experts organization.
Finally, Hennessy is a company dedicated to giving back to the community. They continually support non-profit organizations of all sizes, including this past weekends event for Tripp Halstead with the Sunshine on a Ranney Day charity!
