Gambling technology provisions provider Novomatic Group has announced the impending departure of Jens Halle from its governance team.
Halle is set to leave the joint positions of Managing Director of Austrian Gaming Industries and Chief Executive of Novomatic Americas. Novomatic Group announced that Halle would relinquish his roles by the start of 2015.
Halle said: “15 years ago I was honoured by the invitation of president and majority shareholder Professor Johann F Graf to join the iconic Novomatic Group as head of sales.
“Later, I was appointed managing director of Austrian Gaming Industries and, assisted by a loyal team of true gaming professionals, was able to see Novomatic achieve notable success not just in Europe but around the world.
“However, although I now feel the need for new challenges and new directions, I will always be grateful for the experience of working together with colleagues and friends and for the satisfaction that I gained from being within one of the gaming industry’s true leaders.”
Herbert Lugmayr, Chairman of the Novomatic’s Supervisory Board, added: “I extend my appreciation to Mr Halle on behalf of the owner, the management board and the supervisory board, for his long-standing commitment.
“Mr Halle has made a significant contribution to the international orientation of this company. I wish him all the best for his future.”
