Konami Australia has expanded David Punter's role to include the Asia region within his duties.

Punter – brilliantly named for this industry – is now Konami's Operations Manager Sales, Marketing and Service ANZ/APAC. This means the executive will cover the Asia Pacific area on top of his existing responsibilities within the Australian region.

Punter has over two decades of experience in sales, marketing and product strategy; his new role will focus on customer requirements, as well as driving sales and product strategies.

Before his time at Konami, Punter held roles at Aristocrat and Scientific Games (now Light & Wonder), ensuring his CV boasts some of the biggest names in B2B gaming. Prior to those roles, Punter was Manager of the Prince of Wales Hotel between 1994 and 2000.

Steve Sutherland, Konami Australia MD, and President & CEO of Konami Group's Gaming & Systems division, said: “David has been in senior roles in the gaming industry for nearly two decades, with a passion for sales, marketing products and meeting customer 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.”

At the end of August, Konami announced another senior appointment, with Gerard Grosby becoming the supplier's new SVP & Chief Games Product Offer.

Earlier that month, Konami released its Q2 report, with its Gaming & Systems segment generating ¥7.7bn ($57.3m) in revenue, a year-on-year increase of 22%.
