With a history of cultivating investor relationships and ensuring precision in technical accounting, Kopjo has established himself as a confident financial leader whose skills have helped a number of different companies during periods of growth.  

EMPLOYMENT

Kopjo's career began in 2007 at Ernst & Young. Here he worked as an Assurance Senior for three years before moving on in 2010.  

After this, Kopjo transitioned to Johnson Jacobson Wilcox as a Senior, further developing his expertise in financial analysis and accounting. He held this role for two and a half years before moving on in August 2012. 

Following on from this, Kopjo joined Shuffle Master as a Financial Reporting Manager – a position that he held for a year and a half from July 2012 to December 2013. 

His proficiency in financial reporting paved the way for his next role at Wynn Resorts Limited where he served as Senior Manager of Financial Reporting. Again, Kopjo held this role for a year and a half – beginning in January 2014 and then moving on in July 2015. 

Kopjo's career took a significant turn in 2015 when he joined American Gaming Systems (AGS). Initially, he was the Director of SEC Reporting & Technical Accounting for the company, a role that saw him responsible for managing the company's SEC filings and resolving complex accounting issues. He held this position for two and a half years from July 2015 to January 2018. 

Kopjo’s role in the company expanded in January 2018 when he became the Director of Investor Relations. In this new position, he played an important role in AGS's IPO roadshow and crafted strategies to engage investors effectively. After five and a half years in total with AGS, Kopjo moved on in December 2020. 

In 2021, Kopjo took on the role of Director of Investor Relations again, but this time at Everi Holdings. There, he managed relationships with analysts and crafted comprehensive earnings releases.  

By the start of 2023, Kopjo had risen to the role of Vice President of Finance at Everi Holdings, overseeing an annual revenue budget exceeding $800m.  

In this position, he played a crucial role in the company's $1bn debt restructuring, securing favourable interest rates as well as providing financial models and insights that were vital for executive decision-making. 

Finally, in May 2024 it was announced that Kopjo had been appointed as Chief Financial Officer of Galaxy Gaming. 

Regarding his appointment to this position, Kopjo stated:

“I have watched Galaxy Gaming from afar and always believed it was poised for continued growth, further solidifying its leading position in the gaming industry. I can’t wait to join the team and support the commitment to strategic product innovation. ” Steve Kopjo
