A ROMSEY chauffeur company, which has worked for a host of sporting legends, has expanded to cope with the increased demand for corporate hospitality events and social engagements.

Class Executive Cars, based in Romsey Road, has acquired a luxurious seven-seater Mercedes vehicle to complement its existing fleet.

Steve Rogers set up Class less than nine months ago and is reporting a surge in business. 

He said: “There’s no doubt that the unpredictability of public transport together with our clients’ priorities of safety, reliability and confidentiality, has led to an increase in bookings. I think the key to our success is that we offer a service where our clients can concentrate on their engagements while we handle the logistics. The new vehicle gives us much more flexibility.”

Mr Rogers, who also lists the major cruise companies as clients, operates locally, nationally and internationally. His aim is to address a gap in the market for people who need a reliable and cost-effective driver for business and social engagements. 

With more than 40 years’ experience and fully licensed, Class has a range of premium chauffeur services for both private individuals and corporate clients. 

As the business founder, Mr Rogers has enjoyed a stellar career. A police trained driver, he has had some fascinating assignments at home and abroad. In 2022 he chauffeured senior UEFA officials in England for the UEFA Women’s Championship which saw the Lionesses beat Germany 2-1 in the final at Wembley. 

Eight months earlier he was a driver for, among others, Andy Murray and Novak Djokovic who were playing the Laver Cup at the O2 in London which pits six of the best men’s tennis players from Europe against six of their best counterparts from the rest of the world over three days of intense team competition.
