The Novomatic Group has announced that gaming industry veteran Jens Halle is to leave his joint positions as Managing Director, Austrian Gaming Industries GmbH and CEO of Novomatic Americas Sales LLC.
This move, which was reached by mutual agreement, will see Jens Halle relinquish his roles within Novomatic by the end of this year.
Commenting on the decision Mr Halle said: “Fifteen years ago I was honoured by the invitation of President and majority shareholder Professor Johann F. Graf to join the iconic Novomatic Group as Head of Sales. Later, I was appointed Managing Director of Austrian Gaming Industries GmbH and, assisted by a loyal team of true gaming professionals, was able to see Novomatic achieve notable success not just in Europe but around the world. However, although I now feel the need for new challenges and new directions, I will always be grateful for the experience of working together with colleagues and friends and for the satisfaction that I gained from being within one of the gaming industry’s true leaders.”
Commenting on the decision reached jointly by Novomatic and Jens Halle Mr Herbert Lugmayr, Chairman of the Supervisory Board of Novomatic AG, said in recognition of Mr Halle’s work: “I extend my appreciation to Mr Jens Halle on behalf of the owner, the management board and the supervisory board, for his long-standing commitment. Mr Halle has made a significant contribution to the international orientation of this company. I wish him all the best for his future.“
