For Dawson Rutter, president and founder of Commonwealth Worldwide, the drive to excellence began behind the wheel of a taxi. That is where he saw first-hand how the quality of customer service could make or break a business. After ten years of driving and dispatching taxis, the temptation of driving an air-conditioned vehicle in the heat of the summer lured him to the limousine business. Just a month into his new position as a chauffeur, Rutter jumped at the opportunity to fill in for the vacationing operations manager. The fill-in job soon became a full time position, and he quickly acquired the driving, chauffeuring, dispatching and operations experience that enabled him to envision a luxury transportation service that surpassed all of his previous transportation experiences.
Dawson Rutter in 1982.
In 1982, Dawson used his savings to purchase a single vehicle, an '82 Cadillac "Formal" Limousine, to be exact. With a clear vision of providing the excellence that was missing in the industry, he built the values of accountability, communication, exceptional customer care, and professionalism into the backbone of his organization.
Today, Commonwealth Worldwide serves business travelers in almost 80 countries, and is one of the largest chauffeured transportation companies globally. We look forward to serving you in New York, Boston, or wherever your business (or pleasure) takes you around the world!
