Keith Rogers – East Coast Limos
I was an Information Technology (IT) Consultant with the Federal Government working as a Business Intelligence Specialist for the past 20 years.During my successful IT career, I still felt unfulfilled with my life’s journey and wanted to experience the life of an entrepreneur.
This dream became a reality in 2012, when at the age of 51, I founded East Coast Limos. My life changed forever, for the better.
East Coast Limos started out with one 8 passenger stretched limousine but with my networking, marketing, branding and the building of long term relationships, the business flourished. With this new platform, a controlled growth strategy was implemented by adding one limousine to the fleet every year. East Coast Limos’ fleet now consists of five limousines and provides customer service to all of Eastern Ontario.
After six and half years of branding and growth in Ottawa, we have been fortunate enough to be able to give back to the community through various charity sponsorships, food and clothing drives for the city’s most vulnerable and by supporting small business and startups alike. We are honoured to be in this unique position where we have an opportunity to give back to the community.
