NOVOMATIC, Europe’s leading gaming technology group, strengthens its global operations activities by implementing a new structure and appointing Thomas Komnacky as new VP Global Operations.

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 long-time NOVOMATIC manager Thomas Komnacky, who has been promoted to the new position of VP Global Operations, reporting directly to NOVOMATIC Executive Board Member Ryszard Presch.
“The primary focus of this new structure is to create a combined, cross-divisional unit that will support and manage the international operating subsidiaries as well as coordinate between them and the headquarters. Thomas Komnacky is an experienced NOVOMATIC manager who has been tasked with leading this central division not only because he is very familiar with the Group, but because he already worked closely with the country organizations in the past,” emphasizes NOVOMATIC Executive Board Member Ryszard Presch.
