It all started at a 10-watt radio station in mid-town St. Louis ...
That’s where Kim Tucci realized he had a flair for communicating with people. And during the decades since he first stepped up to a microphone this St. Louis native has touched so many lives in so many ways.
High School and College teacher, coach, business leader, entrepreneur, public speaker, restaurateur, community leader and now a licensed professional auctioneer … Kim’s contributions to the community are numerous raising awareness and millions of dollars annually for worthy causes.
Kim is best known as one of the founders of The Pasta House Co. chain of Italian restaurants. More than 43 years ago Kim along with partners Joe Fresta and the late John Ferrara had an idea for a family style restaurant that has now grown to more than 23 restaurants with more than 1500 employees.
Tucci is also the recipient of numerous awards and honors for outstanding leadership through various civic, business and charitable organizations including more than thirty Man of the Year Awards. He was also named one of the Top 100 Business Leaders in the St. Louis Region by The St. Louis Business Journal.
But beyond his many accomplishments, he also takes pride in raising funds for dozens of charities annually as one of the most sought after professional auctioneers in the Midwest. Kim’s natural personality and humor “connects” with his audience as he encourages them to “reach deep in their pockets” to help others.
Just hand Kim the microphone and watch him make a difference in your next auction, gala or special event.
