Executive VIP???

I was in Sacramento last week... and saw and Executive VIP section. Anyone know what this is? I'm an EE, but I thought the standard selection location is the Executive lot.

Thanks

EXEC VIP is invitation only and usually given to CEO's of National's major high volume accounts. No other "benefits" per se, other than meet and greet personalized service (if the CEO wants it

Cool... Thanks for the info.

Just out of curiosity, how big was the VIP section? I cant believe it would be more than a dozen spots. I think the # of VIP members is less than 5000.

I commuted to Sac weekly for a few months. The National lot for Emerald Club members was seriously lacking. I never saw an "Executive VIP" area either. Hmmm...

I am used to lots like in Denver, Detroit, and Chicago where the Executive Select members get cars like the Buick Enclave, Tahoe's, Edge's and Volvo's. I think the nicest car that I got in my 2 months in Sac was a Prius, and that was only because I tipped the guy at the lot.

A couple of Volvos, a cadillac sts, and a cadillac Escalade are what I noticed.

The section is behind the booth at the lot.

I'm all over the country, and I guess this is the first time I've noticed a lot like this.

Thanks. I'm surpirsed there even was a section. Typically with EXEC VIP they will offer a meet and greet service and have a car set aside for the member (if requested). Since there are not too many members, they dont have their own section, that's why Im surprised they had one in SAC
