Las Vegas-based Maverick Gaming has announced that Tim Merrill has been appointed the gaming provider’s new President of Washington Operations. He will be the first one to hold this position as it has only just been created.
Mr. Merrill is an experienced leader
Tim Merrill will be taking up his new responsibilities with Maverick Gaming after long and impressive career in Las Vegas Sands where he served in multiple senior business roles. The latest one was as Senior Vice President of Slot Operations of Sands China Limited.
However, the list of achievements does not begin there. He previously also held a number of senior posts in companies such as Caesars Entertainment and Delaware North.
Merrill will be overseeing Maverick’s growing number of Washington businesses
Now Merrill is about to start his new endeavour with Maverick Gaming as their President of Washington Operations, a brand new position that was created following the gaming provider’s pending purchases of Nevada Gold and Great American Gaming Assets.
Eric Persson, owner of Maverick Gaming, is extremely pleased with the appointment. He noted:
“Mr. Merrill is exactly the leader Maverick Gaming needs to integrate the multiple Washington properties we are currently purchasing, and transition this business into the regional entertainment opportunity we envision. The fact the Maverick is able to attract well employed, senior talent from the largest gaming company in the world is a testament of what this company is, and as importantly is in the process of becoming.”
The company has recently been expanding aggressively and once the two afore mentioned purchases are finalized, Maverick will own 12 properties in Washington, with approximately 165 table games. Besides, it does not seem they are planning to stop there.
“Over the next few months, we intend to announce further acquisitions in Washington that will demonstrate our commitment to this market,” Persson revealed.
