With a long and successful career in the gaming industry already established Warren joined the Novomatic family in 2000 and was instrumental in setting up, leading and directing the expansion of AGI Africa, the group’s subsidiary of Austrian Gaming Industries GmbH.

In his private life Warren was father to two sons, Wade and Cavin, of whom he was enormously proud, a keen golfer at Ruimsig Country Club, a passionate rugby supporter and a dedicated fitness enthusiast. At the time of his death Warren was planning to run the Comrades Marathon on May 31st 2015 in his beloved South Africa.

Colleagues at AGI Africa described Warren Banks as a ‘fantastic leader, a friend to everyone and an inspirational figure who has been taken all too soon.’ Jens Halle, Managing Director AGI, said: “We are all in shock at the untimely passing of our friend and colleague Warren. Our sympathies go out to his family, friends and industry colleagues. Warren’s loss is hard to bear but we will strive to bring to reality the business objectives that he was already planning and hope that they will stand as a fitting memorial to a true friend and professional colleague.”
