LAKEWOOD, NJ -- Elaut USA has promoted longtime operations executive Richard Listash to director of sales and customer sales support for the United States. The company also has added a new position, director of merchandise procurement, and has retained Christine Tomassone to fill it.
Elaut USA president Neal Rosenberg observed that the sales landscape is changing rapidly, and the time was right to appoint someone with vast product knowledge gained on the operations side of the business. He explained that Listash is the perfect candidate, as he has detailed hands-on knowledge of Elaut's lines garnered during more than 30 years' experience in operations. He is, for example, expert in the new E-Claws and Wizard of Oz.
In his new post, Listash will be available to work with Elaut distributors and their customers to address questions about Elaut products.
Tomassone also brings hands-on knowledge to her new merchandise procurement post. She performed this function for an operator on the New Jersey coast for several years, and then served with an amusement park operation.
Elaut USA Inc. is one of the largest operators and concessionaires of amusement games and related equipment in the theme park industry. It also designs, develops, manufactures and distributes amusement equipment, and provides complete parts and service support for everything it operates and sells. The company is a factory-authorized distributor for all major product lines, and consults on large-scale amusement centers and FECs.
