Interblock Names Sims Company’s VP of Operations

Gaming veteran Todd Sims has been named Interblock’s new vice president of operations. With previous experience at Bally Technologies, he is now reunited with Interblock CEO John Connelly.

Luxury gaming manufacturer Interblock has named gaming sales and service expert Todd Sims as the company’s new vice president of operations. Sims will be based in the company’s Americas’ headquarters in Las Vegas.

Sims’ appointment is the latest in a string of high-profile executive positions the company has filled. “I had the privilege of working with Todd during our time together at Bally Technologies, where as vice president of system operations, he played a senior role in our global operations,” Interblock CEO John Connelly said. “As Interblock continues to expand globally, his experience in creating a cost effective service and logistics infrastructure, combined with a customer centric focus, will be critical to our success.”

Prior to joining Interblock, Sims was vice president of customer service at Bally Technologies, a role within the company focused on field operations and parts warehousing, sales and distribution. Sims led the operations team during the initial launch of Bally Technologies’ Alpha Platform and he integrated the field operations unit from the recently acquired Sierra Design Group to create the new Bally operations team consisting of 170 engineers, technicians and administrators. He also served as director of sales for Four Winds Interactive, where he led his team in selling enterprise software solutions. He also served as vice president of business development for Creditek LLC and was an owner/operator of Launch Point LLC.

Extremely civic-minded, Sims founded eFriends, a charitable organization created to provide Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta patients and their families with laptop computers during their stay in the hospital.
