Konami Australia Pty Ltd. has expanded the role of longtime executive David Punter to include the Asia Pacific region—Punter has already headed operations for the Australia/ New Zealand region since 2018.
Punter will now oversee sales, marketing and strategy for both markets. The company said that Punter’s long track record of success is what led to the added duties.
Steve Sutherland, president and CEO of Konami Group’s global gaming operations, said in a statement: “David has been in senior roles in the gaming industry for nearly two decades, with a passion for sales, marketing products and meeting customers’ gaming requirements.
“This has been reflected in his time with Konami for nearly five years, driving sales and customer results across the domestic markets in ANZ.
With David’s expanded leadership across Asia and passion for effective market delivery, his expanded role will drive even further momentum across ANZ and APAC.”
