Luxury gaming manufacturer Interblock has named seasoned gaming professional Paul Omohundro as product manager based out of its North American headquarters in Las Vegas.
Omohundro brings over 25 years of sales, marketing, and product management expertise primarily in the gaming industry to Interblock. Most recently, Omohundro served as director of electronic table games for Aruze Gaming America Inc. where he was responsible for direct input to R&D for enhancements, new development, and testing; sales and customer training, and direct sales and marketing, all on a global level. Under his leadership, the active seat footprint more than doubled in size, while increasing the WPD per seat.
Interblock’s Global Vice President of Marketing, Colleen Stanton, said, "Unlike other gaming fields, ETGs have a global shortage of product experts. Adding Paul to our team means that we can maintain the levels of quality and growth Interblock customers expect. His expertise will give Interblock a real edge as we continue to expand our business in the years ahead."
Previous positions held at Aruze include director of western regional sales and director of marketing. As marketing director, Omohundro successfully integrated Salesforce CRM, which is now used in all aspects of managing Aruze’s product portfolio and transitioned the marketing department from fragmented regional operations in the Philippines, Japan, Australia, South Africa and the U.S., to a centralized Global effort.
Prior to Aruze Gaming, Omohundro served as the founder and president of Fairway Gaming LLC, a consulting, and sales company to the gaming industry. Omohundro also served as vice president of sales for DEQ Systems Corporation, where he was largely responsible for the successful commercialization of EZ Baccarat and EZ Trac. He also served as chief operating officer for the DEQ subsidiaries; DEQ-USA and DP Stud Inc.
Considered an expert in his field, Omohundro has appeared on the cover of Casino Enterprise Management, and has been a guest speaker at G2E, Raving’s Table Game Conference, and the UNLV Gaming Institute. Omohundro honorably served his country in the United States Navy and is an active member of the Veterans of Foreign Wars and the American Legion.
