After the successful restructuring of its global sales, production and logistics organisation, Novomatic is continuing its transformation with a new structure to strengthen the Global Operations business segment.
All departments and divisions involved in running the approximately 1,900 gaming facilities worldwide, as well as renting gaming equipment, will from now on be bundled in the new Global Operations business segment under the leadership of long-time Novomatic manager Thomas Komnacky, who has been promoted to the new position of VP Global Operations, reporting directly to Novomatic executive board member Ryszard Presch.
“The primary focus of this new structure is to create a combined, cross-divisional unit that will support and manage the international operating subsidiaries as well as coordinate between them and the headquarters,” said Presch.
“Thomas Komnacky is an experienced Novomatic manager who has been tasked with leading this central division not only because he is very familiar with the group, but because he already worked closely with the country organisations in the past.”
Thomas Komnacky, who was previously responsible for market analysis, strategy development and business development, joined Novomatic in 2014. Prior to that, the graduate in business administration and law had worked successfully in investment banking for several years.
At Novomatic, Komnacky also serves as managing director of two subsidiaries and has played a key role in numerous market entries, company acquisitions and international concession projects everywhere from the CEE region to Latin America.
He sees the focus of his new role on strengthening headquarter support for Novomatic’s country organisations, improving the country coverage by central contact persons and expanding their functions at the headquarters and promoting a structured exchange of information in order to take advantage of potential synergies.
“My goal is to make a significant contribution to improving the company’s overall performance by creating even stronger networks between the subsidiaries as well as by providing targeted guidance and support from the headquarters,” he said.
