Limo Industry Mourns Death Of BostonCoach Executive

Posted on August 20, 2014

[UPDATE: LCT will update with commemorative quotes at the bottom of this article from limo industry colleagues as we get them].

BOSTON -– The Dav El/BostonCoach Chauffeured Transportation Network announced the death of longtime executive Marc Martine today, who died of complications resulting from cancer treatment in Morristown, N.J., on Aug. 14. He was 48.

“Marc was a dedicated professional and we are devastated over his loss,” said Scott Solombrino, president and CEO of Dav El / BostonCoach Chauffeured Transportation Network.

“Marc was an invaluable team member, friend and mentor to everyone at BostonCoach. We will miss his positive attitude, incomparable knowledge and insightful perspectives,” Solombrino added.

Martine served as senior vice president of operations at BostonCoach for eight years. In this role, he oversaw BostonCoach companywide operations, including dispatch centers and the chauffeur workforce. He knew in exact detail what it took to connect thousands of chauffeurs with clients at thousands of locations, and ensured every ride was on time. Martine’s expertise benefitted every client that interacted with BostonCoach. Before his death, he managed all sales, marketing and operations activities for the BostonCoach brand.  

Before joining BostonCoach, Martine was a fleet operations director for Avis, the second-largest car rental company in the world. During his tenure at Avis, Martine automated 110 domestic fleet service-centers and traveled to under-performing locations to drive operating efficiencies and profitability. With Avis' acquisition of Budget Rent-A-Car, Marc was instrumental in the consolidation and integration of both back-office and field operations.

A memorial Mass is scheduled Saturday, Aug. 23 at 1:30 p.m. at Our Lady of the Lake Parish, 294 Sparta Ave., in Sparta, N.J.

Colleagues Fondly Remember Marc Martine

"There are very few people in life that impress us both professionally and emotionally. Marc was one of them. He was my friend and the best partner and leader possible at work. His dedication and passion for our industry was unparalleled. Not one day would go by without him focusing on ensuring satisfaction for everyone, from the chauffeurs and employees to the clients and all our partners. He perfectly understood and constantly promoted fairness and value to all. Marc was extremely modest despite the fact that his immense talent and dedication impacted not only BostonCoach but the entire livery industry. We all owe a lot  to Marc. My heart is extremely sad as I remember Marc and think of his lovely wife Phyllis and his boys. Thank you, Marc." -- Catherine Chaulet, President, Global DMC Partners and former executive at BostonCoach
