WELCOME TO THE APRIL ISSUE OF AUTOMATIC MERCHANDISER
- and my first issue as managing editor. I joined the AM and
VendingMarketWatch.com team March 1, and it's been an exciting
transition from my former position with a group of Endeavor brands
for the processing, instrumentation and industrial water industries.
In the past month, I've been busy preparing for my first NAMA show,
and I am looking forward to meeting so many of you at the event.
It's a crucial time for the industry - with everyone recovering from the
pandemic and the advancements of new technologies in unattended
retail, vending and office coffee services, and so much on the horizon.
I took over this position from Nick Montano, but we are pleased to
have him join our Editorial Advisory Board, so you will still see his name
contributing to Automatic Merchandiser and VendingMarketWatch.com
with upcoming feature articles.
This month, we've also been busy with opening several awards
programs, and I can't wait to learn more about the nominees to come.
First, we introduced our Most Influential Women in Convenience
Services Awards, celebrating women in leadership positions. The deadline
to nominate is April 28, so there may still be time for you to submit a
nomination. We will reveal the winners in the next issue.
Second, we recently opened up the nomination period for our

40 Under 40 awards, which debuted last year. For this year's awards,
the deadline to submit your nomination is July 1, and the winners
will be featured in the September/October issue. You can learn more
about one of the past winners in this issue's Operation Profile where
we turn the spotlight on Giambra Vending and owner Josh Giambra.
His Florida vending operation has persevered through a catastrophic
hurricane as well as the pandemic, but today, the operator is seeing
blue skies ahead with growth in micro markets, cashless payment
and prekitting.
In this issue, you can also read about the 2022 winners and
runners-up of our annual Readers' Choice New Products of the Year.
Readers had a chance to cast their votes, and we've presented those
results for 11 categories: Salted Snack, Healthy, Protein & Meat Snack,
Cold Beverage, Equipment, Cookie & Pastry, Candy, Food, Technology,
OCS Product, and OCS Equipment & Systems. Congratulations to
the honorees.
It certainly is a busy time for this industry and the hardworking
people in it. I look forward to working with all of you. Feel free to
reach out to me.
