Meet Our Founder
Founder and president, Alex is an integral force in the culture of precision at KLS Transportation. He works closely with all levels of operations, from dispatch and scheduling, to maintenance and repairs, and of course with high-level group transportation jobs. Alex continues to grow the company as KLS expands into new locations, and he travels often to make sure each branch is running smoothly and in accordance with policy.
Alex Darbahani began KLS Transportation in 1998 with the aim of providing top-level luxury vehicles with professional chauffeurs to the upper-echelon of Los Angeles. Having first learned through driving, Darbahani soon built KLS’s reputation into one where you could get the best luxury vehicles on the market for transport, and even some rare exotic cars like Rolls Royce and Bentley.
Darbahani first got his education with a university degree in Economics at a prestigious college in Switzerland. When he moved to the United Sates in the early 1990s he brought his entrepreneur skills with him and he has grown KLS Transportation to now have fleets in four major metropolitan centers, (Los Angeles, San Francisco, New York City, and London), and a network of vetted affiliate partners in more than 300 cities worldwide.
Darbahani has been a strong chauffeured vehicle industry supporter and won the “Operator of the Year” Award from LCT Magazine in 2013. He is a National Limousine Association Member and strong advocate for “Duty of Care” policies for business travel, and for fair insurance and regulation policies for all transportation companies.
One of the great joys Darbahani has is donating his services for special needs causes and philanthropic groups, providing “Make-A-Wish” foundation free limo rides and sponsorship for a number of social wellness groups.
