MANAGEMENT TEAM BIOS
Daniel Teixeira – Service Manager & Installation Coordinator
It’s a bit of a funny story, but Dan started working for our company before he was technically hired. Dan used to work with his brother-in-law as a 14 year old high school student in the summer months. During his first summer of semi-employment, Dan quickly learned to fix our many types of vending and video equipment. Recognizing Dan’s tremendous interest in our company and his obvious hard work, the company formally hired Dan to work as a technician when he graduated from high school.
Dan now leads the Service Department where he is responsible for coordinating our service team. Dan is responsible for managing his teams workload which includes: machine installations, customer refreshment programs, completion of service calls, and general troubleshooting that occurs with our machines.
