Industry Tech Pioneer Gregg Tuccillo Dies At 59

Posted on July 15, 2013

Limousine industry automation pioneer Gregg Tuccillo died Friday at the CentraState Medical Center in Freehold, New Jersey from complications from a heart attack. Tuccillo, 59, spent over 20 years in the ground transportation industry developing dispatch software to make chauffeured transportation more efficient and effective. Tuccillo was a graduate of Boston University.
 
Tuccillo was employed by Saturn for 20 years before venturing on his own. As President and CEO of Ground Transportation Network, Tuccillo was instrumental in developing and bringing to market the Odyssey dispatch platform which is a leading dispatch platform in the ground transportation market. He was a visionary in ground transportation automation linking the transportation industry with the Saturn reservation network through dispatch software. Using the Saturn reservation switch, Global Distribution Systems (GDS’s) now could use the same system that the booked airlines and car rentals to book ground transportation. In 2008, he sold Ground Global Automation (formerly Ground Travel Technology Team) to Reardon Commerce and remained on board to run the company. There he introduced the current Voyager dispatch platform.
 
Tuccillo was an active industry participant instrumental as the first president of the Limousine Association of New Jersey (LANJ). He worked with limousine company owners to develop the association and remained on board in other roles including treasurer.
 
He was predeceased by his father, Kenneth. He is survived by his wife of 30 years, Kathleen (who works for Gem Limousine in Woodbridge, New Jersey); his two children, Alex Tuccillo of Shrewsbury, VT and Alyssa Tuccillo of Freehold; his mother, Helen Tuccillo; and two siblings, Ken (Rona) and Terry (Tia) Tuccillo.

A memorial gathering will be held on Wednesday, July 17, from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m ., at Freeman Funeral Home, 47 East Main Street, Freehold. Interment will be private. In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation to American Diabetes Association, Bridgewater, NJ. To share photos, leave a condolence, or find directions, visit www.freemanfuneralhomes.com.
