The Americas region includes North America and South America as well as the Caribbean. GTECH Corp.’s current president and CEO, Jaymin B. Patel, will head up the Americas region, as president and CEO of GTECH Americas.
Patel was born in Nairobi, Kenya, and grew up in the United Kingdom. He was appointed president and CEO of GTECH, which he joined in 1994, in January 2008. The reorganization won’t have any immediate local impact, says Patel, but it does put him in charge of continued growth in the Americas. He expects interactive gaming to play a big role in that growth.
