Las Vegas-based Innovative Gaming Corporation of America (IGCA) recently strengthened its management team and plans to concentrate heavily on the tribal gaming market.

Recently Jack Deremer joined the company as National Sales Director. He has over 30 years of experience in gaming equipment sales including 16 years with Bally Gaming, one and one-half years with Mikohn Gaming and five years with Wolf Gaming as Chairman and Chief Executive Officer and the largest single shareholder.

Also, John Van Hoove, a 10 year veteran in gaming equipment sales, joined IGCA as its Director of Indian Gaming. Van Hoove spent six years at Mikohn Gaming as Director of Indian Gaming. In 1995, Van Hoove was Bally Gaming’s top salesman worldwide.

“We are excited to have added two of the gaming equipment industry’s strongest players to our team,” said Laus M. Abdo, IGCA president and chief financial officer. “As we continue to focus on the Indian casino marketplace for our products, there can be no better ”˜standard bearers’ than Jack Deremer and John Van Hoove. I am confident that their addition to the IGCA team will help the Company improve its market penetration in both the traditional gaming and the Indian casino markets.’’

IGCA will participate in the National Indian Gaming Association trade show in San Diego, California, on April 25 and 26.
