As the Director of STM Driven, Nick Gyllin has laid the foundation for ground transportation excellence. After a decade-long partnership with Short’s Travel Management as a subcontractor for motor coach services, Nick opened STM Driven on January 1, 2018.
Drawing from 15 years of service in the ground transportation industry, Nick helps clients secure fair market rates from the nation’s best motorcoach carriers. Using his intimate knowledge of Safety and Fitness Electronic Records (SAFERSYS), Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMSCA), and United States Department of Transportation (USDOT) reports, Nick ensures that each movement is compliant, safe, and reliable, saving clients’ money and time.
He is committed to helping clients source value added transportation options that they would otherwise struggle to find. Nick loves his job with STM Driven because of the people, both clients and colleagues. He says there’s never a dull day.
Nick began his career as a journalist, but found it somewhat boring. He decided to make a move to Chicago where he started a position with a Chicago-based travel company. Following Hurricane Katrina, he was sent by his company to Lackland Airforce Base to work with FEMA and the Red Cross, assisting with evacuee transportation. His passion for helping people find solutions for transportation have grown from there.
Nick holds a BA in English and Journalism from the University of Iowa and enjoys working on his golf game and traveling with his family, including his wife, Caroline, and two daughters, Geneva and Evelyn.
