Geoff McDowell, the managing director for Asia Pacific and global gaming general manager, at SUZOHAPP, left his position at the end of the year to take up a senior position an an unnamed company nearer to his hometown of Melbourne.

This new opportunity allows McDowell to stay within his area of industry expertise while maximizing time with his wife and young daughters, SUZOHAPP said in a press release.

McDowell joined SUZOHAPP in 2013 when the company acquired Transcity Group, a developer of custom hardware solutions for the Casino and Wagering / Sports Betting industries in Australia and Asia. Since the acquisition, McDowell has been leading the SUZOHAPP business in Australia and Asia. In 2016, Geoff took on an additional role as General Manager of Global Gaming, using his 25 years of industry expertise to form our strategic approach in this important space.

“Geoff is knowledgeable and well-respected, both internally and externally,” said Drew Scielzo, Interim CEO. “During his time here, he was fully committed to helping our organization grow. We will miss his passion and dedication to his work, as well as the way he approached all things with a keen sense of humor,” added.
