Ainsworth’s Dreitzer Resigns

Australian slot manufacturer Ainsworth Game Technology, which recently became majority-owned by Austria’s Novomatic AG, announced that Mike Dreitzer, president of Ainsworth Game North America, has resigned.

Danny Gladstone, the parent company’s chief executive, said in a filing with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission that Ainsworth’s North American headquarters in Las Vegas will be run by its “highly capable local management team” while “a suitable replacement is secured.”

Novomatic finalized the purchase of the 52 percent stake in Ainsworth of company founder Len Ainsworth on January 5. In a press release, Novomatic said the company’s plan was to use the acquisition “to increase market share in the United States to about 10 percent over the next five years.”
