Farahi serves as Executive Chairman of Quick Custom Intelligence, having previously served as COO of Monarch Casino & Resort from 2012 to 2021. 

Farahi began his gaming career at Monarch in 1998, while from 2004 to 2007 he held various finance industry roles with HSBC Bank in London, Geneva, and New York. From 2015 to 2021, he served four terms as President of the Colorado Gaming Association, while earlier this year he became an Adjunct Professor at Metropolitan State University Denver.

“David is a seasoned industry executive with extensive experience in both the gaming operator and gaming regulator space,” said AGS President and CEO David Lopez.

“He has a proven track record of leading teams to operational improvements, integrating and scaling a substantial acquisition, and effectively communicating with the investment community.

“We believe his strong industry experience will be extremely valuable as we continue to grow, improve our operational efficiency, and strengthen our relationships with our casino operator partners.”

The new AGS Board member has an MBA from Columbia Business School, and also holds a BA in Economics and International Studies from Northwestern University.

Farahi commented: “I have long admired the passion, grit, and ingenuity of the AGS team. Since its inception, AGS has uniquely approached operators as a true partner, developing products from slots to table games and beyond that delight players. 

“I'm honoured to be joining their board at such an exciting time for the business. I have tremendous respect for David Lopez, his executive team, and the other board members, and I look forward to collaborating with them to the benefit of our team, customers, and shareholders.”
