David Orrick To Step Back as Director of Industry Relations at Merkur

LÜBBECKE, GERMANY – David Orrick has announced that he will be stepping back from his full-time role as Director of Industry Relations at Merkur Gaming, effective Dec. 31, 2023.

The multi-award-winning Orrick has held his present position with Merkur from January 2016 to the present and gave his primary reason for this decision being to have more available time to spend with his family and bring to completion his novel, heavily influenced by the international casino industry, and titled 777 BLUES, that he is currently planning to publish in 2024.

Orrick may still play a consultative role with Merkur in the future, as the company’s Chief Executive, International, Athanasios “Sakis” Isaakidis, commented on the exceptional value that Orrick has brought to the Merkur brand. “With his great experience in gaming and his understanding of market needs, David Orrick has fulfilled not just his job description, but has also played a significant role in many differing decision processes within our group,” said Isaakidis. “He is a valuable and well-respected person who is always available to give his opinion and bring his insight to bear.”

“Personally, I do not want to be without the many constructive discussions that we have had,” continued Isaakidis. “David was always fair in his assessments and always had the best interest of our company in mind. While understanding and fully respecting his wishes on full-time contractual matters, I am sure that Merkur will need his skills and insights at various significant times in the future. As I have said before, David Orrick always thought of his professional duties with Merkur as his passion rather than just his job.”
