The Gaming Technologies Association (GTA) has announced some governance and membership changes.

The first announcement involves the rotation of the independent chairman, Jamie Odell, CEO and MD of Aristocrat Leisure Limited.

Odell oversaw a number of changes in the organisation, including a major strategic and environmental review.

Incoming chair, Danny Gladstone, CEO of Ainsworth Game Technology, thanked Odell for his contribution.

“Jamie brought stronger analysis and discipline to our governance processes. We appreciate the time and effort he invested to ensure the association is functioning well,” Gladstone said.

In addition, Gladstone welcomed two new members to the GTA – Bally Technologies and WMS Gaming.

“Both Bally and WMS are world leaders in the supply of games and gaming equipment for the hospitality industry. I’m sure their knowledge and experience will sit comfortably with current board members and add to the depth of our deliberations and outcomes,” he said.

The association’s full members now include Ainsworth Game Technology, Aristocrat Technologies, Aruze Gaming Australia, Bally Technologies, IGT Australia, Konami Gaming Australia, Shufflemaster Australasia and WMS Gaming Australia.

Independent Gaming Pty Ltd is an associate member.

The GTA operates the annual Australasian Gaming Expo (AGE), which will be held on August 21-23 at the Sydney Convention and Exhibition Centre.
