The Association of Gaming Equipment Manufacturers has had only three executive directors in more than 15 years. The bulk of that time was used by Marcus Prater, but when he retired last year, the choice was evident. Daron Dorsey had been a member of the AGEM board for several years as general counsel for Ainsworth, so he’s familiar with the organization and its processes. As gaming grows, Dorsey believes AGEM has a chance to grow just as quickly as the need for a group to represent the gaming suppliers and their issues becomes more crucial. He talks about AGEM’s new offices at the UNLV Blackfire Center and why he believes that puts the organization in the center of it all. He spoke with GGB Publisher Roger Gros from the Ainsworth Game Technology offices in June.
