Bali Named President of RealNetworks

RealNetworks, a Seattle-based digital media group that provides both land-based slot and internet gaming content, has named Atul Bali as its new president. Bali recently completed two years as CEO of Aristocrat Americas, in charge of the Las Vegas-based slot manufacturer Aristocrat Technologies.

A gaming industry veteran with more than 20 years of global experience, Bali will oversee RealNetworks’ games portfolio, which includes the Slingo brand, and the GameHouse and Zylom game distribution networks.

During Atul’s tenure at Aristocrat, the slot-maker’s Americas business grew significantly in revenue, profitability and market share in each of its games and systems verticals.

Prior to Aristocrat, Bali was CEO of Xen Group (now Disruptive Tech), and spent 13 years in executive leadership at GTECH, and served as president and CEO of GTECH G2, the company’s iGaming and server-based gaming division.
