macauBally Technologies, who celebrates its 80th anniversary this year, has declared how significant the Asia-Pacafic industry is to the company.

Opening its Macau office only five years ago in 2006, Bally’s managing director Kurt Gissane said in areport by Macau Business: “The Asia-Pacific region is extremely important to Bally.” He added that he had a difficult job replacing Cath Burns, who established the company’s Asain head office and managed large-scale systems installation projects for several of the city’s new casinos.

“I don’t look at it as though I have replaced Cath Burns,” he said, as he praised her achievements. However, he wasn’t too negative about their loss. He also mentioned that he was very fortunate to be left with a legacy “which is a strong business across both games and systems but, more importantly, a tremendous team”.

What will be Bally’s next move in strengthening their Asian market? And what will similar companies do in order to fortify their bonds with Asia for that matter?


International provider of gamling technology staffing solutions, Pentasia, announced yesterday the inauguration of its new HR consultancy based in Macau.

Named Pentasia Macau Ltd, the arm was first incorporated in November last year providing human resources consultancy to the gaming market in Macau and acts as a representative office of the Pentasia group.

In a report by Macau Business, Pentasia’s managing director for the Asia Pacific region, Jonathan Pettemerides, said the office’s opening is a significant step forward.

“Macau has been a developing market for Pentasia’s HR consultancy business for some time now and the opening of our new office further enhances the levels of local expertise and face-to-face contact we can provide our Macau based clients.”
