David Orrick, Director of Industry Relations at Merkur Gaming, has been an established name in the international gaming industry for close to 30 years. Now he has been honoured for his many years of service: at the European Casino Awards ceremony in the Grand Connaught Rooms in London’s Covent Garden in February, he received the Jimmy Thomas Outstanding Contribution Award.
“This award means a lot to me. Any recognition from within the industry in which one is privileged to work is a great honour and particularly so in this case as it reflects on long service throughout the companies that I have worked with during my time in the industry,” David Orrick said.
The European Casino Awards honour products, services, operators and personalities of the European casino industry in 21 categories. The award ceremony is organised by Datateam Business Media, publisher of the renowned trade magazine Casino International. With the Jimmy Thomas Outstanding Contribution Award, David Orrick has been honoured for his exceptional commitment to the European gaming industry.
“David is an industry professional who knows and understands the world of gaming and its protagonists like no other. His expertise, professionalism and commitment are highly respected both within and beyond Merkur Gaming by industry and media representatives around the world. We are thrilled for him to have received this special award; it is an important acknowledgement of his contribution to the industry – which in David’s case has always been more of a passion than work,” Athanasios “Sakis” Isaakidis, Chief Executive International at Merkur Gaming, said.
