Patrick Ramsey, President and Chief Executive Officer of Multimedia Games, commented, “Todd brings to our executive team a broad range of corporate legal experience as well as a deep knowledge of the gaming industry and its unique regulatory and compliance issues. As the Company expands its product portfolio and continues its efforts to secure licenses in new jurisdictions, we are facing an ever changing and increasingly complex legal and regulatory environment. Todd is the ideal person to shape our strategies to address this evolving environment and we are excited to welcome him to our growing, highly dedicated team in Austin.”
