Ainsworth Game Technology Ltd., an Australia-listed slot machine maker, has named Sean Evans (pictured, left) as Vice President of Marketing and Product Strategy. Mr. Evans will be stationed at the company’s Las Vegas office in Nevada, USA.

Before joining Ainsworth, Mr. Evans held the position of Senior Vice President of Sales at Eclipse Gaming, a U.S.-based company, for two years. Described as possessing “more than 25 years of experience” in the gaming industry, Mr. Evans has a diverse background in sales, marketing, and product management.

Deron Hunsberger, Ainsworth’s President for North America, praised Mr. Evans, stating that he will bring stability and energy to the marketing and product management teams. Mr. Hunsberger added that Mr. Evans’ hiring underscores Ainsworth’s commitment to recruiting top talent as it strengthens its industry position.

In a separate announcement, Ainsworth promoted Mike Trask (pictured, right) to Head of Game Development Studio in Austin, Texas. Mr. Trask, who previously served as Vice President of Marketing and Product Strategy, has been with Ainsworth for over eight years, taking on progressively more significant roles.

According to the company, Mr. Trask will lead a design team focused on creating high-performing game content. David Bollesen, Ainsworth’s Chief Technology Officer, praised Mr. Trask’s contributions, highlighting his instrumental role in developing successful game titles such as “San Bao Pandas” and “San Bao Dragons.”

Mr. Bollesen credited Mr. Trask’s vision and expertise for the success of these titles, which debuted late last year on Ainsworth’s new A-Star Raptor cabinet. He expressed confidence in Mr. Trask’s ability to lead the Austin team and continue driving growth.

Ainsworth emphasized that Mr. Trask’s promotion reflects the company’s recent emphasis on product development efforts, including a significant 25 percent increase year-over-year in investment for such initiatives.
