Our Team – Todd Marcucci

Todd has an extensive background in product development and engineering management. He began his career while still pursuing his B.S. in Engineering at Texas A&M in College Station, developing some of the first commercial advertising outdoor LCD displays for Texas Digital Systems. After graduating, Todd worked in telecommunications product design and sustaining engineering at Marconi/Reltec on their digital loop carrier systems. He then began expanding his abilities to engineering & project management while working at Littelfuse, transitioning from telecommunications circuit protection design & applications engineering, to local and then global lab management. Todd was responsible for the coordination and centralization of Littelfuse’s lab facilities during their consolidation of semiconductor products into the Wuxi, CN wafer fab operation.

Todd was most recently Vice President of Research & Development for Good Earth Energy Conservation/eFleets. In this role he was responsible for taking the initial concept for the Firefly EV, assembling the engineering team, and transitioning the product from the concept/prototype phase into initial production. Todd was also responsible for developing the initial production line and processes, and providing field support and service for the product.

While there he also implemented numerous improvements in integrity and reliability of existing products. Andy continued working in telecom at Yotta Networks, further developing his design skills, working on the architecture for a multi-terabit distributed optical switching platform.  He then moved from telecom to RFID at Veruscan (Caducys), developing the reader for transponders used to track and detect medical instruments for use in surgical procedures.

This diverse background served Andy well when he became the lead Electrical Engineer for Good Earth Energy Conservation/eFleets. In this role, Andy was responsible for designing and implementing the architecture of the Firefly EV. This architecture included a number of industry standards in its design & compatibility, from the SAE J1772 charging interface, to various CAN protocols used by hardware that was incorporated into the design.
