GARDENA, CA--December 27, 2017-- Andamiro USA Corp., a leading manufacturer of amusement machines, today announced the appointment of industry veteran Tony Maniscalco to the position of senior sales director. In his new post, Maniscalco will be responsible for expanding Andamiro's sales in North America.
"Tony's amusement industry background, entrepreneurial spirit and track record of successfully executing sales strategies will be instrumental as Andamiro forecasts greater product demand and a wider range of customer opportunities in 2018 and beyond," said Andamiro USA president of sales Drew Maniscalco, who is also Tony's brother.
Tony Maniscalco began his industry career more than two decades ago at Pioneer Electronics, where he sold compact disc jukeboxes. He had subsequently directed North American sales for Global VR, Sega Amusements USA and Betson Enterprises' Proprietary Products division. He was also a sales executive at Face Place LLC, a photobooth maker. In his most recent amusement industry position, Maniscalco was vice president of sales and marketing at Benchmark Games, playing a key role in the company's sales growth between 2011 and 2015.
After Benchmark Games, Maniscalco shifted into the casino gaming industry, first as business development manager at TCS John Huxley, a provider of live gaming solutions. Most recently, he was a regional sales manager at Galaxy Gaming Inc. (galaxygaming.com), which develops, manufactures and distributes proprietary table games, electronic wagering platforms and enhanced "bonusing" systems. His region encompassed the southeastern United States and Caribbean, along with the cruise ship industry.
Altogether, Tony Maniscalco brings 27 years of related experience to the Andamiro USA sales organization. And this will be the second time the Maniscalco brothers, New Jersey natives, have worked together; the first was at Sega between 2000 and 2004.
"I've known Tony for a long time," joked Drew Maniscalco. "While Tony left the industry, he never left the friends he made in the coin-op business and maintained contact with many of them over the years. His return to the amusement industry and his joining Andamiro as senior sales director will be well received by distributors and operators alike."
Andamiro USA prexy Satinder Bhutani echoed the positive impact of Maniscalco's return to the amusement sector. "Tony’s moving over to the gaming industry created a vacuum that was distinctly felt in all of coin-op's segments, including operators, distributors and manufacturers," Bhutani said. "His return to amusements and accepting a position with Andamiro USA Corp. makes us feel proud."
