Tell us about Legacy Executive Services. 

Legacy Executive Services is a armed chauffeur service that provides armed and unarmed chauffeur services in the Atlanta and surrounding areas. What makes Legacy Executive Services different is that we as a armed chauffeur we are providing executive protection agents as a escort for your safety and protection. 

What inspired you to become an entrepreneur?
I grew up in a era where you looked up to those that worked for themselves and not reporting to a 9-5 job. My uncle is a entrepreneur as well and I remember walking into his apartment and seeing the initials of his company DMS City on his desk and never seeing him go to a 9-5 job. Tell this day he is still an entrepreneur will multiple house in New York and New Jersey. 

How has Covid-19 impacted your business?
Covid hasn’t impacted my business, I believe it helped me grow as a person and a business. I had more time to think at the beginning of covid. Time is precious if used correctly. Covid has helped me push harder to get where I want to be and focus on my business. 

Jamal Smith CEO

What makes your company different from others in the industry?
What makes Legacy Executive Chauffeur & Protection Services different from others in the chauffeur service different is that we are trained executive protection agents with a chauffeurs license. With everything that has happened in the last year customers want to feel safe with the chauffeur they are with. We are providing a service that is definitely needed in these times whether we are protecting a family, a mother, a child or a spouse that has been traveling for the last week. We are protecting what matters most to the family!! Our clients. In the last year there has been a increase in violence, crime and murders. We want to make sure that families are being protected from and cared for at this tough time. 

How has the competitiveness of shared rides changed the dynamics with the luxury car service industry?
Will I don’t consider shared rides being a competitive option. Shared rides such as Uber and Lyft are great however they are providing a basic service that only covers the passengers in a car accident. With Legacy Executive Services we are going beyond that to make sure you are protected at a red light, a supermarket, or just a day shopping for your spouse or significant other. Shared rides have taken a lot of business from the luxury service however it hasn’t been all good with shared rides. Legacy Executive Services plans to bring back the luxury car experience to Atlanta. 

Where do you see your company in the next five years?
In the next five years we see Legacy Executive Services being at the top of the line in luxury services. We plan on expending out past Atlanta towards Miami, Charlotte NC and even towards the Midwest and West Coast to protect what matters most and that is you.
