Gaming Arts promotes Mike Dreitzer as CEO


Gaming Arts, the Las Vegas-based end-to-end gaming equipment and technology supplier, announced Mike Dreitzer has been promoted to Chief Executive Officer.

Dreitzer has previously served as President of Gaming Arts. 

The company has also promoted Matt Heyerdahl, Chief Accounting Officer & Director of Finance, to Chief Financial Officer. Both promotions are effective immediately.

David Colvin, Founder of Gaming Arts, will continue to serve as Chairman, where he’ll be involved in finance and marketing efforts. 

“Over the last several years, under the leadership of Mike Dreitzer, Gaming Arts has made tremendous strides in advancing its core product lines of Bingo and Keno, while simultaneously experiencing one of the fastest rollouts ever for a new slot machine market entrant, with more than 600 individual placements in less than two years. This all occurred despite the unprecedented COVID-19 crisis.

“Both Mike and Matt have distinguished themselves as true industry leaders by propelling Gaming Arts so rapidly and professionally. The company is now well positioned for great success, and I look forward to continuing to work with Mike and Matt and the team closely in the days ahead as they assume these new roles.”

In recent years Gaming Arts has grown its list of licensed jurisdictions while its number of gaming licenses has reached 130. The company will soon be expanding into Historical Horse Racing and interactive gaming spaces.

Dreitzer said, "I am thankful for the trust that David Colvin and his family have placed in me to lead Gaming Arts as its next CEO.  With lots of hard work and team work by our incredible group, it's clear that there are great things ahead for Gaming Arts.  I can't wait to see where we can go from here."
