“Chris established his own ‘network’ sales company called MVP NETWORK SALES, LLC that has referral salespeople all over the United States as well as internationally. Chris will not only increase our sales presence but also develop a team to cover every state in the country.”

SACOA is one of the world’s leading suppliers of revenue management systems for the amusement and leisure industries. They have nearly 2,000 installations in around 70 countries all over the globe.

The two men have been friends for many years, with Vecchione having closely followed SACOA’s emergence as a world leader in revenue management systems under the leadership of Mochkovsky.
