Galaxy Gaming, a developer and distributor of casino table games and enhanced systems for land-based casinos and igaming, has appointed a new president and CEO.
The board of directors has appointed Matt Reback, who will join Galaxy on November 13. “We are excited to welcome Matt as the company’s new president and CEO,” said Mark Lipparelli, chairman of Galaxy.
“The board carefully considered this change, examined multiple candidates and ultimately believed it was the right decision to bring a new perspective into the company as we embark on our next phase of growth.
“Matt brings to Galaxy a combination of 20 years of leadership skills acquired in the gaming industry from both operator and technology companies. On a positive note, we are making this change with a solid foundation intact and we are well positioned going into the 2024 fiscal year.”
“I am looking forward to joining the Galaxy team and continuing what has been a great story in the gaming industry,” said Reback. “I intend to quickly get up to speed and make sure our 2023 year-end goals and 2024 plans remain on track, while also taking a fresh look at our opportunities.
“There is a team of talented people at Galaxy who have demonstrated their ability to compete effectively against companies with more resources as well as their success forming strong industry partnerships. I expect that one of my goals with the board will be to build on those successes.”
Prior to accepting this role, Reback served as the founder and president of Bravery Gaming. Before that he held senior management positions in product management, sales, marketing and operations with AGS, Konami Gaming, Red Rock Casinos (formerly Station Casinos) and Caesars Entertainment.
Lipparelli added: “We are appreciative of Todd Cravens’ material contributions to the development of Galaxy over the past six years, including navigating successfully the difficult pandemic period. We wish him well in his next endeavour.”
The company intends to work through a brief transition with Cravens and expects Harry Hagerty to serve as an interim president and CEO should such a need arise.
