Soaring High with Apexluxe
By Gisel Habibnejad
Established in 2010, Apexluxe has stayed true to its name and reputation by providing luxurious ground transportation, accompanied with impeccable concierge services. After first gaining a stellar reputation in ground transportation and concierge services, the company grew their legacy 4 years later by expanding to private air transportation. Founded by Diego Piedrahita, Tatiana Osma, and later joined by Leo Osma, each individual boasts impressive credentials. Diego served as a Commercial Vice President of one of the largest trust firms in South America and played an integral role in the development of a startup limousine company in South Florida. Tatiana operated as a travel agent of one of South Florida’s most prestigious agencies and for the past 9 years has been focusing on private aviation as a broker and building relationships with major accounts worldwide. Leo has 6 years of corporate experience in commercial program development and asset marketing, plus a three-year background in startup and entrepreneurial environments. With a combined 20 years industry experience in travel, aviation, transportation, and customer service, it is no wonder Apexluxe has achieved such high-flying success.
