AGS recently announced two key new appointments in product compliance, naming Richard (Rich) LaBrocca vice president of jurisdictional engineering and product quality assurance and Jason Elison director of jurisdictional engineering.
LaBrocca joined AGS after a 19-year career with Gaming Laboratories International (GLI), where he most recently served as senior director of engineering. As a member of GLI’s executive leadership team, LaBrocca was responsible for customer satisfaction; drafting technical standards and legislation; working closely with government and jurisdictional agencies on approval of gaming regulations; and testing all types of gaming devices, central control systems and casino management systems.
Elison brings 10 years of gaming industry experience to AGS. Most recently, he served two years with BMM Testlabs (BMM) as its director of technical compliance and strategic development. Before that, Elison served eight years with the Nevada Gaming Control Board’s Technology Division, ending his tenure as lab manager.
“We are thrilled to welcome Rich and Jason to the AGS family," said Sigmund Lee, chief technology officer. "With their almost 30 years of combined experiences from leading Independent and Government testing agencies, AGS is well positioned to improve on our high-quality standards while becoming even more efficient with our delivery of products to customers.”
