Electronic gaming equipment maker Interblock DD has appointed Joseph Friedman as what it terms “stadium implementation manager”, according to the firm’s Monday announcement.
The term “stadium games” is typically used in the casino industry to indicate large-scale installations of single-seat terminals arranged in rows and that allow large numbers of players simultaneously to play one or more electronic table games.
Mr Friedman will be responsible for liaising with his colleagues and customers to “develop stadium project timelines and to ensure deliverables and deadlines are met” said the firm. In his new position, Mr Friedman will also be responsible for “monitoring new and existing stadium projects”, and seeking ways to optimise product performance, the Monday release said.
He will report directly to Interblock’s project director, Stanley Banks. Prior to his move to Interblock, Mr Friedman served in “various” management roles at Wynn Las Vegas, Hard Rock Hotel and Casino Las Vegas and in venues operated by Station Casinos Inc, according to the Monday release.
Mr Friedman has also held management positions at casino currency and table gaming equipment supplier Gaming Partners International Corp. “With the addition of Joe to the project management team, we are strengthening our ability to provide our customers and partners with the solutions and support needed to ensure stadium implementation and performance are effectively optimised,” Interblock’s Mr Banks was cited in the Monday release as stating.
