Castle Hills Native Wins Prestigious Business Award

by Steve Gamel

Congratulations are in order for former Castle Hills resident Andy Hernandez, who was recently named Entrepreneur of the Year at a Luxury Coach Transportation-National Limousine Association trade show and convention in Atlantic City.The annual event recognizes the humanitarian, charity, and entrepreneurial activities of limousine operators from across the nation. Hernandez, a first-time winner of the award, owns CTA Worldwide Chauffeured Transportation, a family-owned and operated business that is now considered a leader in luxury ground travel to any destination around the world. Started in 2014, CTA’s revenues reached $3 million by 2017. They currently have offices in San Antonio and Austin. “I was very humbled and appreciative of this award,” Andy said.

Andy, a 2004 graduate of Antonian High School, got his start in the profession in 2006 by helping his father, Tony, grow his business, A-1 Limousine and Sedan Service. By 2014, the family had sold that business and formed CTA, with Andy as the managing partner. To date, the company employs almost 50 people, 27 of those being full-time. CTA also has a strong affiliate network of companies it works with to ensure quality and commitment to service.

All the while, Andy has been insistent on maintaining what he calls a family business. Tony is now semi-retired, but is always available to discuss industry trends with his son and give guidance where he can. Andy’s mother, Cathy, sold her transcribing business when CTA was formed and serves as the company’s CFO. The Ford Motor Company was the sponsor of this year’s Entrepreneur of the Year award. And by the looks of it, this could be the first of many awards for Andy moving forward.
