Adam Swaby CEO

Adam Swaby

Chief Executive Officer

Elite Charter was founded during my time studying at California State University Long Beach. At the time I was working in event promotions at Rockstar Energy, which involved organizing events for colleges in Los Angeles to Nevada and Arizona (all of which required coordinating travel). Quickly seeing the value in entertainment transportation, I started running independent events from local colleges to nightclubs in Los Angeles and Orange County. I have a genuine passion for hospitality and my expertise in logistics has made Elite Charter the largest and most successful charter bus company in California.

In 2021, following a decade within the transportation Industry, I created Elite Executive Charter. This independent business focuses on luxury group travel for the corporate and public sectors with a fleet of executive style mini-buses and motor-coaches.

During my free time I enjoy traveling, staying fit and skiing the back bowls whenever I can get away to the snow!
