Brent Scrimshaw, the President and CEO of Atlantic Lottery, has informed the Director Board about his retirement after more than 13 years with the Corporation, eight in its most senior leadership role.

Brent had made significant investments in technology to launch a new lottery gaming system. He directed player-focused strategies that resulted in increased returns to Atlantic Canadians.

“Brent has always been firmly committed to operating Atlantic Lottery in a way that reflects the values and priorities of Atlantic Canadians. Under his leadership, the organization is better positioned to compete in an everchanging global market in a socially responsible way,” Sean O’Connor, Chair of Atlantic Lottery’s Board of Directors said.

“The success we have enjoyed is completely attributable to the skills of the 600 members of our team. I will miss their spirit, their commitment to the company and to each other to get the job done. I am thankful to the Board of Directors for the opportunity to have led this team of immensely talented professionals throughout the region,” Scrimshaw said.

The Director Board of Atlantic Lottery is responsible for selecting and appointing the next President and CEO. The search process will take several months and Scrimshaw has agreed to stay on as long as necessary to ensure a smooth transition.

Excellence is the destination on Blueprint road map

blueprint-acos-2019 Excellence is the destination on Blueprint road mapReading Time: 1 minute

 

‘An invaluable opportunity to outline the Blueprint road map and product credentials to the broader industry’ is how David Purvis chose to describe the brand’s reflections on the recent Autumn Coin-Op Show.

Speaking after Blueprint had completed its post show debrief, which included insight from colleagues at Gauselmann Group sister companies, Praesepe, Regal, Betcom and GeWeTe, Purvis said: “Exhibitions are an opportunity to see the industry from a customer perspective as well as receiving contributions from our sister brands within Gauselmann. Analysing all of the feedback, the theme which recurred time and time again, emanating from every sector of the industry, was the importance that’s being placed on quality and securing products that can authentically be described as representing ‘the best of the best’. The market isn’t interested in second best because their customers, the end-users demand the very best. The bar has most definitely been raised and I’m delighted that both the Wave and the Alphamax cabinets were so well received.”

He continued: “The days of offering consumers a game on an old analogue machine and serving cheap coffee in a plastic cup that’s too hot to hold are long gone. Modern retailing means delivering an excellent consumer experience. Gaming Machines that look outstanding are part of the quality offer that consumers expect and cabinet design is crucial in today’s highly competitive market. We’ve got the added advantage of knowing from our UK Gauselmann Group colleagues what customers in each gaming sector really want and Blueprint will continue to push the envelope in the process identifying the incremental improvements that can transform a good game into a great game.”

Sportradar, the global leader in sports data intelligence, today announced it is to sell the media rights for the upcoming CEV Tokyo Volleyball European Qualification 2020 on behalf of the European Volleyball Confederation (CEV).

The agreement is part of an existing collaboration between the CEV and Sportradar that has run since 2007, which also includes the exclusive global marketing of media rights for the CEV Champions League and the OTT video platform EuroVolley.tv.

The media rights are for both the men’s and women’s competitions, which run from January 5th – January 12th 2020, with both events deciding the final European teams for the 2020 Olympic Games in Tokyo.

Sportradar’s Senior Director, Audiovisual Broadcast, Lutz Tigges, said: “Tokyo 2020 is set to be the standout sporting event of next year and is a major milestone moment for athletes, sports fans and broadcasters. To participate in the Olympics is the pinnacle for European volleyball teams, so these qualifiers are primed to guarantee thrilling moments, fantastic competition and big audiences.”

While the men’s qualifier will take place in Berlin, Germany, the women’s will be held in Apeldoorn, the Netherlands. Both competitions include an eight-team group stage, split into two pools, before the semi-finals and the final, with the winner ensuring a spot at the Olympic Games next year.

In total there are 30 matches, which will feature EuroVolley2019 finalists Serbia and Slovenia in the men’s competition and 2019 women’s runners-up Turkey. All matches will be produced in full HD to an international high-end standard with at least 9+1 cameras and international match graphics.

A three-minute highlight package will be produced shortly after each match and made available to broadcasters, news channels and social media platforms.
