He will succeed Bart Shuldman, who has held the role for more than 25 years.

Casino and gaming software-driven solutions and technology developer TransAct Technologies has named John Dillon as its new Interim CEO. Dillon was appointed by the company’s Board of Directors and will succeed CEO Bart Shuldman, who recently resigned from the position.

Shuldman served as TransAct’s CEO since 1996. Along with stepping down as CEO, he has resigned from his role as a director.

The outgoing CEO said: “After 27 years of serving as TransAct’s CEO, it feels like the right time to step away and spend more time with my family.

“The company is in a position of strength and I have no doubt John will help lead TransAct into its next stage of growth.”

Dillon joined the Board in 2011 and has held several executive-level positions throughout his career. He has extensive experience in both sales and management, and has worked for companies like Aerospike, Navis, Oracle Corporation and Electronic Data Systems.

Dillon obtained an undergraduate degree from the United States Naval Academy and earned his MBA from Golden Gate University.

Dillon said: “I am eager to take a more active leadership role in the business as we look to grow revenue and execute on our strategic plan.”

Board Chair Haydee Olinger took a moment to wish Shuldman well and welcome Dillon to his new role.

Olinger commented: “On behalf of the Board, we want to thank Bart for his nearly three decades of dedication and service to TransAct and our valued customers.

“We are fortunate to have in John a highly experienced former chief executive who has been intimately involved in the development of our strategic plan as a director, to step in as interim CEO and lead our implementation efforts. He is very familiar with our culture and our operations, having served on our Board for more than a decade.”
