Fahrenkopf Named BMM Director

Gaming testing laboratory and technical consultancy BMM Testlabs announced that Frank J. Fahrenkopf, Jr., the former president and CEO of the American Gaming Association, has been named a non-executive director on the board of BMM International, effective February 1.

“This is a very exciting time for BMM around the world,” said Martin Storm, BMM’s president and CEO. “Having the esteemed Frank Fahrenkopf join the BMM group board is extraordinary for each of BMM’s stakeholder groups and a tremendous vote of confidence in our culture, capabilities and commitment to the gaming industry worldwide.”

Fahrenkopf was the founding president and CEO of the AGA, and spent 18 years heading the gaming industry’s main trade organization before retiring last summer. Fahrenkopf serves as co-chairman of the Commission on Presidential Debates, which is responsible for the widely viewed presidential debates during the quadrennial election cycle. As a counsel at Hogan Lovells, Fahrenkopf gained national prominence during the 1980s when he served as chairman of the Republican Party for six of President Ronald Reagan’s eight years in the White House (1983 to 1989).
