Apple Industries Hires Industry Veteran Paul Jacobs as Vice President of International Sales

February 10, 2013 No Comments

Paul Jacobs has joined Apple Industries as vice president of International Sales and Marketing, where he will lead the company’s ongoing sales and marketing of its line of advanced Face Place digital photo booths to Europe, Asia and Latin America.
“The presence of Paul Jacobs, whose leadership has been known and respected worldwide in our industry for more than four decades, provides an impressive endorsement of the quality of Face Place products,” said Apple CEO Allen Weisberg. “His decision to come aboard Apple also strengthens an already-strong team.”
“I’m delighted to be a part of Apple, a company whose leadership in its sector is second to none,” said Jacobs.  “From the quality of its digital photo booths to its aggressive integration of social media into the customer experience, Apple has created so much of the photo booth renaissance of recent years. Allen Weisberg and his team have truly made this category one of the essential staples for today’s street operators and FECs alike, based on earnings, popularity, customer traffic and longevity.”
Over the course of an industry career that began in 1967, Jacobs has served as president or executive vice-president of numerous top amusement machine manufacturers.
Apple President Warren Friss has also announced the elevation of Apple’s longtime National Sales Director Mel LaForce to the newly created post of vice president of U.S. Sales and Marketing.
“We are proud once again to recognize Mel’s invaluable contribution to the ongoing success of Apple Industries,” said Friss. “Every distributor and nearly every operator in America knows and trusts Mel’s knowledge and integrity. We look forward to enjoying our association with him as one of the pillars of this company for a very long time to come.”
