It has also announced the expansion of its management team with Rich Maryyanek joining as Head of Global Business Development; Tommy Florio as Vice President of Sales, Eli Weissman as Head of Production, Patricia Morelli as Vice President of Regulatory and Product Compliance, and Joe Galante as Vice President of Operations and Field Services.

Maryyanek, Florio, and Weissman will be based in the company’s New York City headquarters while Morelli and Galante are running the Las Vegas office, located at 2630 S. Jones Blvd., Suite 2.

Blaine Graboyes, CEO of GameCo stated: “We’re thrilled to be adding such wonderful talent and experience to the team at GameCo. Our vision is to create a VIP destination for gamers at casinos and this requires bringing together the best people from the worlds of casinos, video games, and events. No other company is able to offer the combination of experience and resources, especially as esports continues to become critical to the casino industry.”

The new additions come with an impressive level of experience; for example Florio is a gaming industry veteran with over 35 years in casino operations and game manufacturing, whilst Weissman founded Highline Games and headed up a department at Rockstar Games and New York Television. 

Esports Insider says: Great news for GameCo and the esports industry. The company has in the recent past agreed a deal to supply Caesar’s Entertainment with its Video Game Gambling Machines, and with this new Vegas HQ it’ll be looking to expand this portofolio.
