CLEVELAND, OH -- Vendors Exchange International Inc. announced the retirements of general manager Steve Lewin and longtime equipment sales and purchasing associate Barry Ferguson.
Lewin joined the company full time in 2007 as general manager, following several years as a consultant. He oversaw a tremendous period of growth for the company as it evolved from being a dealer of used equipment and new replacement parts to developing several vending innovations, ranging from its M.I.N.D. touchscreen interface and Universal Control Board to custom graphics. He also oversaw the expansion of the company's repair business.
Ferguson has been with the company for 41 years. He spent most of that time purchasing used equipment and building relationships with key accounts. He continues to run a trucking company that makes pickups and deliveries for VEII.
