From the first time we called to inquire about transportation to the Hospital for Special Surgery in NYC everyone at your company has treated us extremely well. During that first call in October my husband asked what type of vehicle he would be most comfortable in considering he is 6'4 and had very limited mobility, Kathleen said that she would check with Steve because he is also tall.

Stephen DiMarco started in the limousine business fresh out of high school in 1984. His dad Angelo was instrumental in supporting his dream of becoming an owner operator, and even helped him finance his first purchase of a Lincoln Town Car and a Stretch Limousine. With that one Limousine and Town Car Stephen was off and running. Stephen would drive during the day along with marketing, washing and maintaining the two vehicles. He would drive all day long and always look for an opportunity to increase his customer base by advertising on the radio with WTIC 96.5, WHCN and WRCH and other local Corporations. Eventually he bought a third limousine and more corporate sedans for increasing his foothold in the Hartford, CT area. This is how Ambassador Limousine was born; (Ambassador was the predecessor to Premier Limousine). Ambassador Limousine kept growing to multiple limousines and town cars servicing Corporate and leisure business through CT and the Tri-State Areas.

After establishing his growing business Stephen DiMarco eventually married Lisa and they started their family. Together they had 2 children his son Angelo, named after his dad and his daughter Gabrielle. Stephen had grown the business quite successfully to a fleet of approximately 82 working vehicles servicing the Tri-State area. In 2000 Stephen DiMarco received an offer to sell off Ambassador Limousine service, an offer that would allow him to spend a significant amount of time with his family and enjoy some of the rewards of his hard work.

Eventually Stephen DiMarco and his family had moved to Naples Florida, in which ,he had expanded his transportation company in that local area. He finally realized in his young retirement decided to go back to his roots and his love for CT and re-enter the CT Marketplace. Stephen started his new company in 2001 and is now known as Premier Limousine. He rehired some of his Management team from the Ambassador Limousine Days. Stephen was able to grown his small business to a fleet of over 75 vehicles that is the largest limousine company in CT. Stephen DiMarco is the preferred transportation provider of many of CT’s top corporations. Not only has he maintained these accounts but continues to grow this segment of the business, Premier at one point in time had over 100 vehicles including approximately 25 large motor coaches. Premier regularly employs over 100 individuals, and during its peak operating season that number grows to over 200 individuals. Premier is a family owned business and over the last few years Stephens son Angelo has become more and more involved with the operations. His dad Angelo still actively participates in the management of the organization and was instrumental in Stephen’s foray into the business and continues to participate in management decisions.

Stephen is an active member of the community and supports many local charities and causes throughout the area. Stephen supports the Jim Calhoun Foundation and their charitable efforts, Western Baseball Little league, and recent hurricane efforts for the victims of Hurricane Harvey.
