It is with deep sadness that we inform you that Leo Palumbo, who worked in the vending industry as a manager since the 1960s, passed away yesterday.

In his career of over 50 years, he contributed to several milestones in the development of Italian vending, during his first experience in Faema and in the following ones in Bianchi and Saeco.

He was a longtime EVMMA (European Vending Machine Manufacturers Association) member and in Confida he held several times the role of President of the vending machine and accessories manufacturing group and was member of the Board of Directors for many years.

The EVA would like to express its most sincere condolences to his family, friends and colleagues.
