Orrick Joins Merkur Gaming

Merkur Gaming, the gaming machine subsidiary of German amusement giant Gauselmann Group, has named industry veteran David Orrick as director of industry relations.

For the past nine years, Orrick, a 20-year veteran of European gaming supply, has been director of communications and business development for Novomatic Group. He had been brought to Novomatic by the late Jens Halle, who was managing director of Novomatic’s Austrian Gaming Industries subsidiary before moving to Merkur shortly before his death last year.

“I am truly both excited and honored, in equal measure, to be given this great opportunity,” Orrick said. “The strength of European gaming companies has always been their entrepreneurial spirit, allied to technical excellence and innovation. In Merkur Gaming those qualities are at the very forefront of the company’s culture and that, allied to the clearly stated ambition for international expansion, is what will drive and energize me.”
