Galaxy Gaming appoints Matt Reback as new President and CEO

November 7, 2023

Reback will join the gaming development and distribution company November 13.

Matt Reback, former President and Founder of Bravery Gaming, has been appointed as President and CEO of gaming development and distribution company, Galaxy Gaming, by its Board of Directors. He is expected to begin this position on November 13, 2023.  

Reback has been a part of the gaming industry for nearly 20 years, beginning his career in the industry as Director of Brand Strategy for Harrah’s Entertainment in 2005. Other notable moments in his career include a three-year position as VP of Global Marketing and Product at Konami Gaming and five years as EVP for AGS.  

He has also been at the helm of several partnerships undertaken by previous companies, including a partnership between Bravery Gaming and Konami Gaming in September.  

Galaxy Gaming is reporting this appointment following a successful Q2. It reported a 33% rise in revenue and EBITDA from Q2 2022 and was also able to report a net income, as opposed to a loss, from the time last year. Galaxy Gaming is expecting a similarly successful Q3, with the company predicting a revenue of $6.1m. 

The company develops and distributes systems and casino table games for both land-based and iGaming operators. Founded in 2006, Galaxy Gaming currently includes subsidiary Progressive Games Partners.   

On Reback's appointment, Chairman of Galaxy’s Board of Directors Mark Lipparelli said, “We are excited to welcome Matt as the Company’s new President and CEO. The Board carefully considered this change, examined multiple candidates, and ultimately believed it was the right decision to bring a new perspective into the Company as we embark on our next phase of growth.”
