Spectrum Gaming Group Promotes Two Executives

LINWOOD, NJ--(Marketwired - Sep 19, 2013) - Spectrum Gaming Group, the world's leading consultancy serving governments and the gaming industry, is promoting two of its leading executives to newly created senior posts.

Joseph S. Weinert, who has been with Spectrum for 10 years, has been promoted to Executive Vice President, overseeing all economic studies and gaming-related research.

Andrew Krimmel assumes the title of Director of Administration, and will be responsible for all of the company's finances, administrative procedures and internal controls.

Krimmel has been Chief Financial Officer for Spectrum-i, a sister company based in Fort Washington, PA, a global leader in providing due-diligence, investigative and related services to corporate and government clients. He will retain that position as part of his overall portfolio. His career began with working for one of the largest mutual fund families in the US based in Malvern, PA. While there, Krimmel worked his way onto one of the company's corporate finance teams providing analytical support and analysis to senior management and top executives.

"Andrew is an incredibly astute financial manager, corporate leader and communicator," said Spectrum Managing Director Fredric E. Gushin. "He is the right person for this important post as we position ourselves for future growth."

Weinert has been studying the global gaming industry for nearly two decades, first as a reporter for The Press of Atlantic City and later as senior vice president for Spectrum.

"Joe's proven value as a knowledgeable analyst and leader has helped grow this company over the past decade, and he has earned this promotion," said Managing Director Michael Pollock. "He will play a pivotal leadership role in our future."
