Aruze Names Jolly to Executive Post

Aruze Gaming America is again strengthening its global management team by tapping a familiar source.

The slot manufacturer entered the North American market last year with the help of General Manager Kent Young and Chief Development Officer Scott Olive, both formerly longtime executives (marketing VP and head game developer, respectively) of slot-maker Aristocrat Technologies. Last month, Aruze announced that it has appointed Ken Jolly, another longtime Aristocrat executive who most recently was general manager of Asia-Pacific for that company, as its new executive vice president and general manager for Australia, Asia, Africa and Europe.

According to the company, Jolly will be a “pivotal member of Aruze Gaming’s senior management team,” responsible for new business and strategic development in key international markets. He will oversee international operations and sales and guide Aruze’s penetration into new markets in his four regions of responsibility.
