Gaming-testing specialist and technical consultancy Gaming Laboratories International LLC (GLI) has named Rick Ketchledge (pictured) as the firm’s new senior manager of engineering for its laboratory in Las Vegas, Nevada in the United States.
“Ketchledge brings a wealth of gaming industry-related experience to GLI that will be beneficial to the company’s operator, supplier, and regulatory clients,” the U.S.-based company said in a press release issued on Wednesday.
According to the release, Mr Ketchledge’s previous job was quality assurance senior analyst for Las Vegas-based casino operator MGM Resorts International. Prior to that, he served as senior software test engineer for casino and lottery equipment brand International Game Technology; and quality assurance manager for testing/test automation at Las Vegas-based airline Allegiant Air.
“GLI’s customers rely on us for supreme accuracy, quality, and expertise, and we are confident that Rick’s diverse experience in the gaming and hospitality industries, from the operator and supplier perspectives, will benefit our customers,” GLI director of engineering, Faisal Khan, said in a statement included in the release.
In the Macau market, GLI has been providing testing services for 10 years. In September, the firm was accredited by the Philippine Amusement and Gaming Corp, that country’s gaming regulator, to test and certify online gaming technology operated by holders of Philippine Offshore Gaming Operator (POGO) licences.
In an interview with GGRAsia in June, GLI’s vice president of global services, Ian Hughes, said that online gaming compliance testing services have become an important part of the testing work being done by the company in Asia.
