Former Ainsworth Senior Vice President, General Counsel and Group Compliance Officer Daron Dorsey has been named as new Executive Director of industry trade body, the Association of Gaming Equipment Manufacturers (AGEM).
Dorsey, who has also served as an Officer and General Counsel of AGEM since 2016, will step into his new role on 1 March 2022, replacing Marcus Prater who has served as AGEM Executive Director since 2008.
“Daron’s broad knowledge base, diverse skill set and experience will be tremendous assets as he assumes this new role,” said AGEM President David Lucchese. “While we’re sad to see Marcus step away, Daron’s manufacturer background and familiarity with AGEM make him a perfect fit to step in.”
Dorsey said his hope is that AGEM “can further build on what it has already accomplished and continue to foster a business environment where its members prosper.”
In addition to his prior roles with AGEM and Ainsworth, Dorsey has previously served as General Counsel for William Hill US and at law firms Snell & Wilmer LLP and Jolley Urga Wirth & Woodbury.
He has been a member of the State Bar of Nevada since 2001 and is admitted to practice before state and federal courts in Nevada, along with the United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit. Dorsey currently serves as a Trustee for the UNLV Foundation, on the Alumni Leadership Circle, Dean’s Advisory Council, Gaming Law Advisory Board and Law Fund for UNLV’s William S Boyd School of Law, where he was honored as the law school’s Alumnus of the Year in 2017.
