Novomatic Restructures Global Operations; Adds U.S. CFO

After the successful restructuring of its Global Sales and Production & Logistics division, Austria-based gaming supplier and operator Novomatic AG is continuing its program of transformation initiated last year, implementing a new structure to strengthen the Global Operations business segment.

All departments and divisions involved in running the approximately 1,900 gaming facilities worldwide as well as renting gaming equipment will from now on be bundled in the new Global Operations business segment under the leadership of longtime Novomatic manager Thomas Komnacky (l.), who has been promoted to the new position of vice president of global operations, reporting directly to Novomatic Executive Board Member Ryszard Presch.

Komnacky, who was previously responsible for market analysis, strategy development and business development, joined the Novomatic AG group in 2014. Prior to that, he had worked successfully in investment banking for several years.

Also at Novomatic, the Americas division has announced that Len Busche (l.) will become its chief financial officer. Busche has spent more than 20 years in financial and operational roles, leading value creation and integration functions for influential organizations like the Illinois CPA Society. He has recently served as the senior vice president of finance for Novomatic Americas.
