After working together for 23 years, Amanda Roberts and Phil Reynolds have decided to go their separate ways in business. Auto Vending Magazine (or Automatic Vending as it was originally known), provided the vending industry with news, features and event coverage from 1991 to 2012, when it established Auto Vending-e.
Amanda is forging ahead with a new career as an author and has had one novel published already. She is also undertaking freelance writing projects with a growing number of clients. Phil is going to concentrate his efforts on the further development and growth of Vendex, which is truly a success story. Future Vendex events will be run by Phil under a new name of Trade Events. Rephoto Publishing will cease to exist and the Auto Vending-e website will be closing shortly.
