(September 8, 2014 – Vernon Hills, IL) Incredible Technologies (IT) announced today changes to its gaming sales team. Dan Schrementi was appointed as Vice President of Gaming Sales & Marketing, Beena Blake was named Vice President of Strategic Accounts and Ted Grevelis was brought on as Regional Sales Manager for the states of Minnesota, Iowa and Wisconsin. These announcements come at a pivotal time for the privately-held slot manufacturer as the company also announces record sales through the summer and a new platform launch at G2E.
Dan Schrementi has played an instrumental role in the growth of IT since their entry into the casino gaming market in 2005. He has held various roles within marketing department, moving from Director of Gaming Marketing to Vice President of Gaming Marketing in 2012. In his new role as Vice President of Gaming Sales & Marketing, he will continue to play an integral role in product market planning, corporate strategy and will now lead the company’s gaming sales organization and US market expansion.
Beena Blake has held various positions within IT over the last four years and brings over 25 years of casino gaming experience to the company. Her experience also includes over 21 years holding various managerial roles at IGT. During Blake’s time at IT, she has helped lead the strategic rollout of the company’s video slot games in numerous jurisdictions. In her new role, Blake will now be responsible for developing IT’s strategic account base and will utilize her extensive experience to maximize sales and revenue targets with volume-based customers.
Ted Grevelis brings IT over a decade of experience in the gaming industry and comes most recently from FutureLogic as their Business Development Manager for the Midwest Region. He previously held various positions at IGT including International Sales, Systems Sales, and finally as Director of North Central Sales. IT plans to leverage Grevelis’ extensive knowledge of the Northern-Midwestern Region to expand sales relationships in an important region for IT slot market expansion.
Schrementi is enthusiastic about IT’s positive momentum. “We sit in a complicated time for the industry with mergers, acquisitions and casino closings effecting our competitors’ decisions,” he said. “Yet our sales team is facing record revenue in 2014 and aggressive forecasts. We attribute this momentum to a simple message for our customers – private company, ‘For Sale’ games with premium results. Our Infinity® U23 cabinet is headed to G2E with fantastic national test results and our sales team is built to run. With this timing and our team in place, we couldn’t be happier with our strategic position as a sales organization.”
