Spielo Expands Asian Sales Team

Slot and system supplier Spielo International is expanding its sales groups for slots and systems in Asia. The company named Lai Fatt Chiang as general manager of casino systems for Asia Pacific, and Maria Garcia has been named director of casino game sales for Asia.

Based in Malaysia, Lai has 10 years experience in all aspects of the gaming industry in Asia. His past experience includes his role as group general manager of RGB International, as well as three years with Spielo International’s games division (the former Atronic).

Garcia, based in Macau, has been a well-respected distributor for several slot manufacturers in the region since 2006. Her most recent role was as sales and marketing director for Asia Pioneer Entertainment Ltd.

We believe she’ll become a key person in our long-term strategy for the Asian market. We are happy and proud to have such an experienced and skilled person joining us as part of this important journey in this region.”
