Timothy Tuccelli, Caribbean Regional Director
Tim brings over 25 years of business leadership experience to CitiHope International. Instrumental in producing over $500 million in resort development, he was a guiding force in the hospitality industry; building brands and guiding top-tiered companies of several Caribbean destinations, including Mexico, Aruba and the Dominican Republic. As a humanitarian, Mr. Tuccelli is now dedicated to developing strategies and programs that ensure sustainability and multiply benefits for human development of the most vulnerable populations of Latin America.
Mr. Tuccelli helped create the CitiHope program Sanar una Nación (Heal a Nation) with Dominican corporate partners, as a banner to join prominent corporations, government agencies and credible local NGOs to serve those “without a voice”; the most vulnerable populations of developing nations. This very successful public-private partnership, launched in the Dominican Republic, is spearheaded by CitiHope’s proven capacity to deliver needs-based donations. In just three years this program has delivered over $100 million in critically needed medicines, medical supplies, equipment and life saving nutrition to the needy of the Dominican Republic and Haiti. The Sanar una Nación platform is expanding to other developing countries in Latin America and the Caribbean.
Born of medical missionary parents and raised in Papua New Guinea, Mr. Tuccelli is married and has two daughters, one son and a granddaughter. Mr. Tuccelli is a skilled facilitator, a dynamic public speaker and is fluent in English, Neomelanesian and Spanish. Board member since 2015.
