Gaming Arts hires industry veteran Mike Dreitzer as president
- Gaming Arts, LLC recently announced that Mike Dreitzer has been named as the company's new president, effective February 26. Dreitzer will also join Gaming Arts' coard of advisors.
Dreitzer brings to the role a career of nearly 20 years in gaming manufacturing, technology and regulation, having held key positions with several leading companies in the sector. He recently stepped down from his role as president of North America for Ainsworth Game Technology, where he led a period of significant growth for that company, taking it to more than $80 million in annual revenue, as well as spearheading other significant growth initiatives.
"We are delighted that Mike will be joining the company and working to lead us to the next level. For his part, Mike will have a broad mandate to develop the business both domestically and internationally," said David Colvin, founder and CEO of Gaming Arts. "Over the last several years, Mike has been instrumental in Ainsworth Game Technology's meteoric rise in the North American market, so he understands what it takes to achieve success and sustainable growth."
"We're moving from a period of tremendous research and development focus to bringing truly revolutionary new products to market," Colvin said. "Mike Dreitzer is the right person at the right time to lead Gaming Arts during this transformative period for our company."
"I am very excited to work with David Colvin and the entire Gaming Arts team to help drive the company's growth in the gaming industry," said Dreitzer. "Over my years in gaming, I have seldom seen a company with such an expansive portfolio of new products covering the full breadth and scope of gaming, all with significant intellectual property protection. It's an exciting time to join Gaming Arts and I look forward to leading this team of passionate professionals as we bring game-changing products to our customers."
