ATLANTIC CITY, NJ (Wednesday, February 7, 2018) Meet AC is reporting that Gary Musich, vice president of sales for Meet AC has announced his retirement from the tourism and hospitality industry to pursue other passions in life, which will be effective March 2.
Musich has spent more than 25 years promoting the city as a premier meeting, convention and trade show destination. He is most proud of the commitment of all of the sales and service professionals 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. We could not have grown this segment of our business without all working as one,” said Gary Musich, vice president of sales for Meet AC. He added, “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.”
“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. 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,” said Jim Wood, president and CEO of Meet AC.
Replacing Musich will be Meet AC’s Senior Director of Sales, Sandi Harvey who most recently has been promoted to Vice President of Sales. Harvey has worked in the tourism and hospitality industry for more than 25 years. Harvey 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. Throughout the years, I have continued to believe in the destination, which makes it easier to sell,” stated Sandi Harvey. She continues, “If you believe it, you can achieve it!”
