NYX Gaming Group has made two key appointments to its executive team, bringing in Jason Walbridge as chief operating officer and Eric Matejevich as chief financial officer.

The supplier said the appointments would further develop its execution capabilities and support its growth in regulated markets worldwide.

Walbridge joins NYX after 18 years working at Aristocrat, where he served as chief supply officer and prior to that managing director of the EMEA (Europe, the Middle East, and Africa) division.

“Everything we do is focused on quality products with speed to market and deployment across all channels,” said NYX Gaming CEO Matt Davey. “As we continue to experience rapid growth we have appointed Jason Wallbridge to drive the group operating strategy across our content, systems and business development divisions.”

Matejevich will lead the company’s finance division and brings a wealth of experience, having served on NYX’s board and in leadership positions at Atlantic Club Casino, Resorts International and Merrill Lynch.

In taking up his new duties, he has formally resigned from the board to focus full time on the CFO role. NYX will look to make additional appointments to the board in due course.

As a result of Walbridge's appointment, incumbent NYX COO moves to the role of executive vice president of systems, while former CFO Art Hamilton will become executive vice president of finance, reporting to Matejevich.

This reshuffle also sees Huw Thomas, formerly chief corporate development and marketing officer, take up the newly-created role of group chief strategy officer.

“Both of these appointments strengthen our execution capabilities and support the excellent foundations we have built to deliver world-class products and services to our customers in regulated markets,” continued Davey. “Eric and Jason join us at a very exciting period of growth and I'd like to welcome them both to the team."

Both roles are effective immediately and will be based at the group's Las Vegas headquarters.

“Matt and the executive team have made important breakthroughs to establish a leading position in the supply of gaming content and technology in regulated markets,” said Wallbridge following his appointment. “They have set the bar high with their vision and ambition and I'm looking forward to working with them to build out additional execution capabilities across their group operation."

Matejevich added: "I join the group with a deep understanding of the core strengths and capabilities of the business. NYX has built its multi-product, diversified business through high profile acquisitions and the recent Q2 results demonstrate that the industrial logic behind the acquisitions is already bearing fruit.

“I look forward to working with Matt and the talented teams across the business to deliver the next phase of growth.”
