The Gaming Technologies Association (GTA), a trade body in Australasia for casino gaming equipment makers, announced on Tuesday the appointment of Chris Muir (pictured) as executive officer.
Mr Muir “is qualified in economics and law and has extensive leadership experience in both the public and private sectors,” said the association in a press release.
GTA said the appointment followed “an extensive search” conducted by employment search and recruiting services firm Boyden Australia.

“Chris will bring the additional expertise and knowledge required for GTA to further elevate its position as a voice of reason and a trusted adviser to all stakeholders,” added Mr Halpenny.
GTA primary members include: Ainsworth Game Technology Ltd; Aristocrat Technologies Australia Pty Ltd; Aruze Gaming Australia Pty Ltd; IGT (Australia) Pty Ltd; Interblock Asia Pacific Pty Ltd; Konami Australia Pty Ltd; Scientific Games Corp and Tabcorp Holdings Ltd.
