Tony Maniscalco celebrated the close of 2017 by taking a position as senior sales director at Andamiro USA, the company where his brother, Drew Maniscalco (president of sales), has been a fixture for years. With nearly 27 years of experience in the industry, Tony will be responsible for expanding the firm’s sales across North America.
“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.”
Tony began his industry career at Pioneer Electric, selling CD jukeboxes. He spent time in sales at a variety of subsequent companies, including Global VR, Sega Amusements USA and Face Place. His most recent industry post was at Benchmark Games where he was VP of sales, playing a key role in that company’s growth between 2011 and 2015.
He took a break from amusements after Benchmark, shifting his focus into the casino gaming industry, where he worked at TCS John Huxley and Galaxy Gaming Inc. Now, he joins his brother Drew at Andamiro, which is the second time the New Jersey natives will have teamed up in this industry (the first was at Sega between 2000 and 2004.)
“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,” said Andamiro USA President Satinder Bhutani. “His return to amusements and accepting a position with Andamiro USA Corp. makes us feel proud.”
