The Gaming Technologies Association (GTA) has announced the appointment of an independent chairman and two new directors.

Aristocrat Leisure Limited CEO and MD, Jamie Odell, has been appointed to chair the GTA Board for a 12-month term.

Odell has extensive experience in consumer-oriented industries and will bring a strategic focus and global view to GTA’s deliberations.

In addition, Stargames president and CEO, Simon Ashley, and Aristocrat Technologies MD – Australia and New Zealand, Trevor Croker, have also been appointed to the GTA Board.

GTA chief executive, Ross Ferrar, said the association was delighted that Odell agreed to lead the board over the coming year and that Ashley and Croker would also be actively contributing.

“The current gaming industry environment demands strong and strategic leadership. These high-calibre appointments will ensure the GTA continues to build its capability and impact for the benefit of members, and the industry more broadly,” Ferrar said.

“We are determined to continue to provide the world’s best gaming equipment and technologies to Australia’s casinos, clubs and hotels by continuing to work closely with all industry stakeholders.”
