There is a new management structure in place at Novomatic Africa, it was announced by the Austrian slots manufacturer yesterday.
The company, 20 years in the South African market, has reshuffled its top executives at its headquarters in Johannesburg, covering both the casino and LPM (limited payout machines) markets.
The team, which also handles sales into other African countries, notably Namibia and Eswatini (still often referred to as Swaziland), is now headed by Sonya Nikolova (pictured), Muriel Loftie-Eaton and Alexander Merwald as joint managing directors.
Nikolova is acting as CFO and continues to lead African sales, Merwald is CIO and head of Novomatic Group mergers and acquisitions and Loftie-Eaton is acting CFO. Novomatic has extended its thanks to the outgoing Gary Chapple and Gordon Cameron.
Nikolova joined Novomatic in 2016 in the global sales department, Loftie-Eaton is an accountant with the group since 2017, joining the Africa subsidiary board last year, and Merwald has had 11 years with the group, initially with the M&A department.
