Chris Vecchione, Senior Vice President / National Sales Manager

Chris has maintained the position of TOP income producer (sales) in each year and position since graduation from college, even after taking on greater roles of management along the way. A believer in long hours and dedication to the bottom line, he believes Second Place is LAST PLACE.

 

A steadfast believer in relationship marketing, he utilizes strong client relationships to expand the scope of the sales initiative. Coin-operated amusement and games distribution relationships built over 25 + years still produce sales and provide Chris with hundreds of potential "relationship marketers", especially in the greater Philadelphia region, but also all over the United States. As a contributing writer for several trade magazines (Replay, Playmeter, Vending Times) Chris has kept his name visible to the entire nationwide community of coin machine manufacturers, distributors, operators and locations. These locations are mostly hospitality businesses, including many chain restaurant/tavern accounts such as Burger King, McDonalds, Tilted Kilt, Dave & Busters, Friendly's, Red Robin as well as a host of bowling centers, skating rinks and other high-traffic entertainment and drinking/dining establishments.

 

The perceived magnitude of 3D Digital out-of-home advertising is of great appeal to Chris, who envisions utilizing his vast network of locations and industry “tradesters” to help grow the 3D business rapidly and profitably.
