AGS (“the company”) announced that gaming industry executive Matt Reback has joined the company as executive vice president. In his new position, Reback will lead AGS’ slot product operations, including product management, production, and service, as well as the company’s growing interactive division.
“There’s no doubt AGS had a momentous 2016 and we’re not about to let up anytime soon – that’s why we’ve recruited Matt to drive continued success for our slot and interactive product operations in 2017 and beyond,” said David Lopez, president and CEO of AGS. “Matt is a thoughtful and conscientious leader with a dynamic personality that fits with our culture and execution style. We’re pleased to have him as a part of the AGS family and a member of our executive team.”
In his new role, Reback will report directly to Lopez with a focused effort on strengthening the company’s product operations to strategically align output with the growing product demand in the marketplace. Before joining AGS, Reback was most recently the vice president of marketing for Konami Gaming. Prior to Konami, Reback severed in multiple executive positions for Station Casinos as well as Caesars Entertainment. He received a Juris Doctorate from the University of San Diego, School of Law, and a Bachelor’s degree from the University of California Los Angeles.
“It’s hard not to sit up and take notice of AGS,” said Reback. “I’ve been watching the company grow from a relatively unknown Class II distributor to one of the most diversified, fastest-growing suppliers in the marketplace. I’m thrilled to have joined a company on the rise, with so much potential, and with such a remarkable culture. I have no doubt my abilities, combined with the collective experience of this talented executive team, will lead AGS to exceed the expectations of our customers and the market.”
