ATLANTIC CITY, N.J.
Meet AC announced that Gary Musich, vice president of sales for Meet AC, will retire from from the hospitality industry, effective March 2. Replacing Musich will be Meet AC’s current senior director of sales, Sandi Harvey.
Musich has spent more than 25 years promoting Atlantic City, N.J., as a premier meeting, convention and tradeshow destination. He said he is most proud of the commitment of all of the sales and service professionals, within his organization and beyond, that make this industry successful.
“The leadership, the teams at Meet AC and the Atlantic City Convention Center, the property sales teams, and all of the support staff and service providers should feel just as proud to be a part of the success," Musich said. "We could not have grown this segment of our business without all working as one.
“I will miss the passion, comradery, and friendships that have been a part of my career and I will forever be thankful for my experience in Atlantic City," he added.
“Gary’s drive and determination to get the job done is one of the reasons why the organization has been successful, especially since the formation of Meet AC in 2014," said Jim Wood, president and CEO of Meet AC.
"Gary has been the consummate professional and the entire Meet AC team wishes Gary the best in his future endeavors, while enjoying his well-deserved retirement," he added.
Passing the Meet AC Sales Torch
Incoming VP of Sales, Sandi Harvey, has worked in the tourism and hospitality industry for more than 25 years. She made her debut in Atlantic City in 1983 as the Manager of Hotel Sales at the Sands Hotel & Casino.
Harvey gained a great amount of experience and grew her footprint by starting at the Atlantic City Convention & Visitors Authority (ACCVA) in 1995. From there, she worked her way up through the ACCVA with various positions and landed in the sales department, which is where Harvey flourishes today with Meet AC.
Harvey has been responsible for productivity reporting, ensuring the sales team has the resources they need to meet their goals, and managing the synergy between the Atlantic City Convention Center and property partners.
“I am extremely excited to take on this new role as Vice President of Sales and to assist our team in exceeding our room night goals," Harvey said. "Throughout the years, I have continued to believe in the destination, which makes it easier to sell. If you believe it, you can achieve it!”
