Today I am pleased to announce Mike Dreitzer in the role of Chief Operating Officer of BMM Americas.
Mike comes to BMM with broad gaming experience gained over 15 years in the U.S and internationally.
Mike received his graduate degree in Applied Economics from Cornell University and his law degree from Emory University.
Mike was the Deputy Attorney General for the State of Nevada, providing legal representation for the Nevada Gaming Commission and Nevada Gaming Control Board.
Mike was the EVP and General Counsel for Progressive Gaming International directing all legal work and regulatory compliance for a listed public company.
Mike was co-founder and COO of Global Gaming Group, one of the first international gaming content companies supplying vendors with game design and technology integration services. G3 was a client of BMM for a number of years.
Over the last five months Mike has been working closely with the BMM North American executive to progress U.S. accreditations. In this time he has won the confidence of the executive team with his ability to lead key strategic activities.
Mike has hit the ground running and will be announcing a series of organizational changes and additions in the Americas to improve business focus, responsiveness and performance.
I wish to thank Rich Williamson and Wendy Anderson for their operational leadership service most recently. Going forward, Rich will return to deepening BMM’s regulatory impact in the U.S. through targeted thought leadership and relationships, whilst Wendy will return to the Office of the CEO to provide global Marketing and HR leadership. Also, Larry Ruhe has resigned as VP Finance for BMM North America to work with the BMM group in a new and different capacity.
Please thank Rich and Wendy, and welcome Mike.
