Meet Marco Henry, President of The Yellow Cab Company

In 1991, The Yellow Cab Company was purchased by Belgian immigrant Marco Henry. Marco Henry was born and raised in Belgium and attended school to become a seaman. In 1971, he was employed on a ship where he “wandered the world” for several years.

Ending up in the U.S. in 1978, broke and needing work, Henry began driving a taxi. In 1980 he purchased his first taxi license in Miami as well as a taxi company of eight vehicles in Springfield, Massachusetts. In 1984 Marco Henry became an American citizen. After years of hard work, he grew his fleet to 65 vehicles.

He then sold that company and bought The Yellow Cab Company of Hartford, Connecticut in 1991. As President and CEO, Mr. Henry’s leadership has brought many improvements to The Yellow Cab Company and the local taxi industry. In addition to founding the Taxicab Association of Connecticut, (T.A.CT.) an organization that promotes best practices among operators tackling subjects like insurance, safety and taxi industry regulation, Henry also became concerned about how to clean up the environment. Today, The Yellow Cab Company operates its fleet of vehicles on environmentally friendly, compressed natural gas.
