SUZOHAPP announces departure of Geoff McDowell

Managing Director APA and Global Gaming General Manager Geoff McDowell departed SUZOHAPP at the end of 2017. McDowell has assumed a senior position at a company located closer to his home in Melbourne. This new opportunity allows McDowell to stay within his area of industry expertise while maximizing time with his wife and young daughters.


McDowell joined SUZOHAPP in 2013 when the company acquired Transcity Group, a developer of custom hardware solutions for the Casino and Wagering / Sports Betting industries in Australia and Asia. Since the acquisition, McDowell has been leading the SUZOHAPP business in Australia and Asia. In 2016, Geoff took on an additional role as General Manager of Global Gaming, using his 25 years of industry expertise to form our strategic approach in this important space. Geoff was instrumental in securing and maintaining our largest gaming customer for several years and provided leadership and mentoring to his team throughout the globe.


“Geoff is knowledgeable and well-respected, both internally and externally,” said Drew Scielzo, Interim CEO. “During his time here, he was fully committed to helping our organization grow. We will miss his passion and dedication to his work, as well as the way he approached all things with a keen sense of humor,” added.


Mr. McDowell will continue to be involved with the business as needed during the transitionary period.


“We thank Geoff for his years of service and leadership to SUZOHAPP. We wish him all the best in his new role” said Mr. Scielzo.
