The Spirit of the American Entrepreneur

Regional Administrator Justin Crossie

Op Ed By Regional Administrator Justin Crossie 

December 28, 2020

There is no doubt that 2020 has been a trying time.  There is, however, something to be said about the American entrepreneur.   I have seen firsthand, during my recent journey throughout the region, a common thread connecting entrepreneurs – an unwavering spirit and will to triumph in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic.  Very much like the Great Depression of the 1930’s, the coronavirus pandemic has threatened the nation’s economy and small businesses especially have felt the impact of COVID closures and restrictions.  The American entrepreneur has yet to turn tail from the challenge.

Executive Transportation Drives through Crisis with SBA-backed Programs

Executive Transportation provides premium business class limousine and luxury car services to customers across the country. It also manages holiday tours, weddings, etc. Owner Gus Ortis explained that, “COVID hit us pretty hard. We are a luxury service and that is the first thing to go. Plus, corporate travel was really limited at the time of extreme uncertainty.”

With revenues down significantly, the company went from growing and profitable to being in trouble almost overnight. The drop from 100 reservations a day to 10 during the worst of the crisis forced it to lay off 33 of the staff of 44.

To help weather the storm, Ortis reached out for help from the SBA. He received funding from the Paycheck Protection Program and used the knowledge and connections he acquired from SBA’s Emerging Leaders Program in 2019.
