Austrian gaming operator and supplier Novomatic has announced changes to its leadership team with Thomas Graf named as CEO of the Greentube Group.

Novomatic said that the changes will optimise its corporate structure after several years of expansion, beginning with its supervisory and executive boards.

Harald Neumann remains as chairman of the executive board and chief executive officer, serving alongside chief operating officer Ryszard Presch.

Johannes Gratzl has been named as the company’s new chief financial officer following the departure of Peter Stein, with Gratzl previously serving as head of group treasury.

As the new CEO of Greentube Group, former chief technology officer Thomas Graf assumes responsibility for the growing online gaming division.

Novomatic also confirmed that chief investment officer Christian Widhalm has resigned from his position on the executive board for health reasons, but will continue to be available to the company in an advisory capacity.

Meanwhile, Novomatic's supervisory board has been reduced to three members following the retirement of Barbara Feldmann and the departure of Martina Kurz.

Bernd Oswald remains as chair of the supervisory board, with Martina Flitsch serving as deputy chair and Robert Hofians as board member.

“Novomatic will continue along its chosen path and further optimise internal structures in Austria and the international group companies across national borders,” Neumann commented. “In doing so, the globally active gaming technology group hopes to increase company efficiency and achieve strong synergies between the various shareholdings.”
