The new, expanded position will see Kaminkow help drive innovation across the group, including in new gaming products and mobile game genres, along with further growing the company’s “capabilities and fostering world-class talent”.

He will report to Matt Primmer, Aristocrat Gaming Chief Product Officer, and will work with teams across Aristocrat Gaming, Pixel United, and Anaxi, the group’s recently rebranded digital Real Money Gaming (RMG) arm.

“We are delighted that someone of Joe’s calibre will be working full-time across the company to champion innovation, helping us to further penetrate growth opportunities and develop even more outstanding talent within our business," said Aristocrat Gaming CEO Hector Fernandez.

“As a valued colleague and contributor to our success for almost a decade, Joe’s brilliance and creativity is well-known to us at Aristocrat Gaming and across the industry. In this newly dedicated role, we look forward to Joe’s focused efforts to help our teams take their product portfolios to the next level.”

The appointment extends Kaminkow's lengthy association with the group, dating all the way back to his initial appointment as SVP of Game Development in 2013.

He previously served as Chief Creative Officer at Zynga, and holds over 130 patents throughout the fields of game design, operations, and networks.

Kaminkow commented: “I am thrilled to expand my commitment to Aristocrat in a dedicated, full-time role, enabling me to devote my creative energies to all areas of the group’s ongoing growth and success.

“I have been so impressed with the talent and drive of our employees over the past nine years and am excited to help Aristocrat take its next steps forward.”
