tcsjohnhuxleyThe Board of Directors at TCSJOHNHUXLEY – yes, that’s all in capitals – has announced today that their Group Chief Executive effective, David Heap, will be stepping down on 1 March 2012.

But not to get the tissues out just yet. From that date he will take on the new role as Advisor to the Knutsson family portfolio of companies and business interests. Yipee!

Chairman, Bertil Knutsson, said: “David is a true professional who has provided strong leadership and a great deal of knowledge and experience to his role. He has undoubtedly established excellent foundations for the company to continue to grow and prosper. We wish him much success in all his future endeavours.”

David’s career began in 1996, when he was appointed CEO of TCS. Since that time he has overseen the introduction many new products that have gone on to shape gaming floors of today.

But what did Heap have to say for himself? “It has been both a pleasure and a great opportunity to be part of TCSJOHNHUXLEY,” he said. “I would like to thank the Knutsson family, the Board and all the staff for their support over the last 15 years.”

In 2003 he was instrumental in bringing TCS and John Huxley together and has since steered the company to become what they call themselves “the global leader in the manufacture and supply of live table gaming products and services.”

Goodluck, sonny jim.
