Eric Devlin is the owner and president of Premier Transportation Services, which he founded in 1996 with two vehicles and three employees. Today, the company has over 90 vehicles, 125 employees and thousands of loyal corporate clients. In addition to serving the Dallas-Fort Worth market, Premier has created a worldwide network (The Premier Global Network) to provide ground transportation solutions anywhere in the world – truly a one-stop shopping experience!
Premier Transportation, which is a nationally and locally award-winning company, provides corporate ground transportation utilizing town cars, limousines, executive vans, mini buses and limo buses. In November of 2015, Premier started its Motor Coach/Tour division and now has eight (8) brand new MCI J4500 56 passenger motor coaches.
“We are not just a corporate provider, however! We are so honored that our clients think to use Premier for their family get-togethers, proms, weddings, and vacations all around the world,” Devlin says. Many of the original clients from 1996 still use Premier Transportation for all of their chauffeured transportation needs today because they know they can expect excellence from the company.
Devlin goes on to say “Additionally, I’m very proud of my staff and our great chauffeur team because their excellence – along with the loyalty of our clients– is the reason Premier Transportation has acquired so many accolades, including the 2017 National Operator of the Year Award (3rd time to win – 2009, 2011 and 2017), the 5 time “Best Transportation Provider Award” from the American Association of Certified Wedding Planners, Texas Meetings and Events 2016 “Best Transportation Provider for the State of Texas” and many other local and industry awards by other organizations over the past 20 years.”
A graduate of Baylor University in 1989 with a BA in Marketing/Management, Devlin began his career as an auto underwriter with State Farm Insurance Company in Columbia, Missouri. In 1996, he and his wife moved back to Dallas. In a recent newspaper article, Devlin explained, “I quickly learned that you DO NOT take a Texan out of Texas.” When the reporter asked about his proudest moment, he answered, “Other than my marriage and the birth of my kids, it was being selected as the NorthStar Award Recipient for Entrepreneurism and Philanthropy.” In this same vain, Devlin and the Premier Team was awarded the LCT’s People’s Choice Award – Gold Star National Award - for their 2016 donation of services for the fallen Dallas Police Officers during the attack of July 2016.
In the past, Devlin has served as an active member of the Interfaith Housing Coalition (IHC) board of directors and is a devoted advocate of the organization, which serves homeless families with children. Under his leadership, renovation was completed of the Beltzer Hope Community Center for resident services, job search, case management, children and teen activities, and community outreach programs.
Devlin also founded the annual Cardinal Capital Home and Hope Golf Classic, which raised more than $240,000 for Interfaith Housing in three years. Linda Hall, Executive Director for IHC, said, “Eric Devlin is the type of board member that executive directors dream about. He is committed, talented, ethical, and passionate about our mission of effectively moving homeless families to self-sufficiency. He is a leader who steps in to solve problems with a ‘can do’ attitude of service.”
Mr. and Mrs. Devlin, who have been married nearly 26 years, have two college-aged children. Mr. Devlin enjoys golfing, boating, cheering on his favorite Missouri Tigers and Baylor Bears, and spending time at his family ranch in the Texas Hill Country.
