US-based gaming and loyalty provider Everi Holdings Inc. has announced the promotion of Randy Taylor to the newly created role of President and Chief Operating Officer.
Taylor’s appointment was one of a number of changes to the company’s executive team on Monday following the extension of CEO Michael Rumbolz’s contract for an additional 14 months through 31 March 2022. Rumbolz will shift his primary focus towards Everi’s long-term strategic growth initiatives, including support for the company’s ongoing growth plans, its organizational development, corporate culture and technological innovation, Everi said.
Taylor, who has served as Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer since March 2014, will now assume primary oversight of the company’s day-to-day execution of ongoing operational performance targets and efforts to drive continuous improvement across its operations.
“Randy has been instrumental in driving Everi’s success and positioning it for continued growth,” said Rumbolz.
“He has had direct oversight of many areas of the business where we’ve achieved significant success. These include the improvements in our balance sheet during the last several years, the implementation of prudent investment strategies, including the disciplined allocation of capital to expand and improve our Games and FinTech product portfolio that has driven consistent profitable growth, and overseen several accretive acquisitions.
“His experience and attention to detail will help to further improve our day-to-day focus and financial performance.”
Everi has also appointed Mark Labay to succeed Taylor as Executive Vice President, CFO and Treasure while David Lucchese will take on the role of Executive Vice President, Sales, Marketing and Digital.
