HARDCAR Appoints New COO, Salvatore Moccia, also Purchases Northeast Security Company, Increasing Footprint in US Cannabis Market

HARDCAR is making moves and preparing for the future of cannabis in the United States by hiring a new COO with a proven track record of success, as well as picking up new acquisitions to expand the company’s territory.

February 27, 2019 – (Palm Springs, CA) – California based HARDCAR announced today that it has appointed Mr. Salvatore Moccia as its new Chief Operating Officer (COO). The company is also announcing that it has purchased National Cannabis Security Services, expanding its title as the nation’s largest armored cannabis company.

“I’ve known Sal for over a decade and this isn’t the first time that we’ve built something significant together. When a company is looking to really dominate a space it needs to bring in the best person it can possibly find, and in this case that person is Sal Moccia. We are honored that he has accepted the challenges ahead and look forward to the next stages of our national and international growth. Sal has experience in all markets and brings incredible leadership and drive to our team.” – Todd Kleperis, CEO of HARDCAR Distribution

Mr. Moccia has over 25 years of Operations and IT leadership experience with a consistent track record of driving increased levels of productivity, profits and internal/external customer satisfaction. In addition, his extensive acquisition and due diligence background will assist HARDCAR with growing its footprint across the United States, establishing a franchise model which will eventually lead to opening up international markets.

“I would first like to say that I am humbled and honored to join such an amazing team and to be part of something that supports our veterans. HARDCAR has proven itself as a leader in the cannabis industry with its innovative business model and superior quality products and services. Together with the vision and experience of CEO, Todd Kleperis, and with my background in acquisitions and mergers and ability to bridge the gap between business and IT, we can take this company to the next level. I look forward to working with the HARDCAR team toward expanding our company’s footprint domestically and internationally to dominate this space in the industry.” – Salvatore Moccia, COO of HARDCAR Distribution

In addition, HARDCAR is excited to announce that it has acquired National Cannabis Security Services (NCSS) out of Pennsylvania, expanding its US footprint to over ten (10) states. NCSS was founded by Mr. Theodore V. Daniels (Ted) and provides security professionals to the legal cannabis industry throughout the northeast. Mr. Daniels is a pioneer in the cannabis security industry and has been featured by a number of syndicated media networks including HBO Vice, Rolling Stone and Wall Street Journal.

“My team and I couldn’t be happier to be a part of the HARDCAR team and culture. HARDCAR, under the direction of CEO Todd Kleperis and COO Salvatore Moccia, have proven to be the secure transit innovator in the cannabis space. We are excited to expand our existing footprint on the east coast with true financial and transit solutions that just a few years ago, we thought was impossible.  We are honored to be with the best in the industry.” – Ted Daniels, HARDCAR VP of New Development

Mr. Moccia’s experience in mergers and acquisitions has shown to be industry agnostic. He led HARDCAR’s first acquisition conversation within his first two weeks as COO, and finalized it in less than 30 days. Mr. Moccia has brought massive growth to a number of organizations, and this recent acquisition is only a small glimpse into what he intends to bring to HARDCAR.

Mr. Daniels and the NCSS team are prior military vets and highly trained in their security practices, adding great value to the HARDCAR team while also building on the foundation of hiring Combat Service and Law Enforcement veterans. Their team is at the front of HARDCAR’s Northeast expansion and will play a major role in dominating the US market.
