Mr Elison will jointly lead the department with Peter Nikiper, also a director of technical compliance. The two men will report to Travis Foley, the company’s executive vice president for operations – Americas.
Based at BMM’s Las Vegas headquarters, in the United States, Mr Elison will work directly with gaming regulators and BMM’s service delivery team “to ensure equipment testing is conducted in compliance with jurisdictional regulations,” the firm said in a statement.
