From the Buffalo to the Lightning Link, dominance in Class II to the RELM steppers, Aristocrat Technologies has been doing just fine over the past few years, thank you. Credit for that starts with Matt Wilson, Aristocrat’s Americas managing director, and Jay Sevigny the president of the company’s VGT subsidiary. Both have directed talented teams of engineers, game designers, marketing and sales staff and others that have elevated Aristocrat to one of the industry giants. Wilson’s rise through the ranks of the company have hit every base, and Sevigny brought VGT’s Class II edge and stepper machines to fill a void at Aristocrat. Aristocrat’s recent appearance at G2E has only reinforced the sense that the company is continuing to hit home runs. The two met with GGB Publisher Roger Gros and Editor Frank Legato at G2E in early October to talk about the company’s strategy in North America.
