Gumpoldskirchen, September 5, 2019 (OTS) – After years of rapid and successful expansion, NOVOMATIC has been pursuing a phase of consolidation and optimization for its corporate structures since last year. As an important intermediate step, the bodies of NOVOMATIC AG have now been reorganized and are now set up as follows:

Dr. Robert Hofians, Supervisory Board member

As the new CEO of the Greentube Group, the former Chief Technology Officer Thomas Graf will assume responsibility for the promising online gaming market.

Barbara Feldmann will continue to be represented on the Supervisory Board of Löwen Entertainment GmbH in Germany.
