Lazydays continues to strengthen its sales leadership team with the addition of Mike Moccaldi as Sales Manager. He will join nine other industry veterans in managing a team of more than 100 sales consultants at Lazydays’ flagship Tampa RV dealership.
Moccaldi began his RV career as a sales consultant at La Mesa RV. He was subsequently employed by Camping World, where he served as internet sales associate and desk sales manager before being appointed as general sales manager.
“Lazydays is renowned throughout the industry as the ‘RV Authority’ and I am excited to finally be part of the team here after years of competing against them,” Moccaldi says.
Ron Fleming, Lazydays Vice President and General Manager, says that the Tampa dealership is expanding its sales operations to support recent growth and new opportunities.
“Mike’s rapid career progression reflects his superior RV knowledge and sales talent, and we are proud to bring that expertise to Lazydays,” Fleming says. “We have built a sales organization of the highest caliber, and I am confident that our sales management team will help us achieve even greater levels of success in the years to come.”
