Patrick Ramsey has left Harrah’s to join the gaming technology developer

Gaming technology developer and distributor Multimedia Games of Austin, Texas announced that Patrick Ramsey has been appointed to the newly created position of chief operating officer.

For the last six years, Ramsey served in various executive and operational positions with Harrah's Entertainment, most recently as vice president and executive associate to the vice chairman at Harrah's corporate headquarters in Las Vegas.
