Bali Exits Aristocrat Americas

Rich Schneider, the chief product officer for Aristocrat, has been named as interim president of the company’s Americas division. Schneider, who joined Aristocrat after a long career at IGT, fills in for Atul Bali, who departed after more than a year at the helm.

“I would like to acknowledge Atul Bali’s leadership and contribution during his time at Aristocrat, particularly in supporting our product strategy and helping to guide our growth in digital gaming,” said Jamie Odell, CEO and managing director for Aristocrat Leisure Limited.

The move is part of announced changes to the company’s executive structure. Odell says a global chief operating officer will be appointed by mid-2014 after a global search.

“I’m confident our new executive structure will ensure we extract maximum benefit from our strong new product portfolios in the market and position the business to accelerate our performance trajectory,” said Odell.
