On October 4, the Association of Gaming Equipment Manufacturers (AGEM) announced the appointment of Daron Dorsey as its new Executive Director. Dorsey will begin his new role on March 1, 2022.

As a graduate of the University of Nevada – Las Vegas (UNLV), Dorsey has maintained a relationship with the city as a long-time legal professional. Dorsey began his legal career as an attorney at two established law firms and later transitioned to General Counsel at William Hill US.

“Daron’s broad knowledge base, diverse skill set, and experience will be tremendous assets as he assumes this new role,” affirmed AGEM President David Lucchese.

After his time at William Hill, Dorsey served as Senior Vice President, General Counsel & Group Compliance Officer at Ainsworth Game Technology in Las Vegas and, since 2016, has worked as an officer and General Counsel of AGEM.

According to Lucchese, “Daron’s manufacturer background and familiarity with AGEM make him a perfect fit to step in.”

Dorsey is also a Trustee for the UNLV Foundation and serves in the Alumni Leadership Circle, the Dean’s Advisory Council, the Gaming Law Advisory Board, and the Law Fund for UNLV’s William S. Boyd School of Law. For his continued service to the UNLV School of Law and the legal profession, Dorsey was awarded the law school’s Alumnus of the Year award in 2017.

Reflecting on his new role, and the work of his predecessor Marcus Prater, Dorsey expressed his hope that “AGEM can further build on what it has already accomplished and continue to foster a business environment where its members prosper.”
