Bally Technologies Adds Former IGT Exec

Bally Technologies last month announced that former IGT executive Randy Hedrick has joined the company as vice president of development.

“Randy Hedrick is a true superstar in our industry,” said Richard Haddrill, Bally Technologies’ CEO. “As a veteran of all aspects of product development within the gaming industry, he brings a wealth of knowledge and experience which will be instrumental in continuing the growth of our industry-leading R&D efforts and portfolio of world-class gaming products. We look forward to welcoming Randy and his Aurora Design group to Bally.”


Hedrick previously served as senior vice president of labs for International Game Technology. He left IGT 20 months ago to become president of Aurora Design, Inc., a Reno-based design studio that develops advanced technology applications for the global gaming industry, focusing on community gaming, new product creation, and intellectual property strategies and licensing.
