Kopjo has more than 15 years of experience in the gaming industry, most recently with Everi as vice president finance. He succeeds former CFO Harry Hagerty, who is transitioning to a strategic advisor role for the Las Vegas-based developer and distributor of casino table games and technology.

“We are thrilled to welcome Steve as the latest casino gaming expert to join our talented and ambitious Galaxy Gaming team. His experience, leadership, work ethic, and contagious energy will without a doubt contribute to our continued growth and success,” said Galaxy Gaming President and CEO Matt Reback in a statement. “While it is never easy to replace someone like Harry Hagerty, we are proud of how we have supported his transition from a full-time C-suite role and continue to leverage his valuable experience as a strategic advisor.”

In addition to Everi, Kopjo has worked in financial capacities for Wynn Resorts and Play AGS. He started his career at Ernst & Young as an auditor for casino operators.

“I was honored to be considered and ultimately selected for this role by Galaxy Gaming,” Kopjo said. “I am excited to join a company with such a respected board of directors, talented leadership team, and robust business foundation. I have watched Galaxy Gaming from afar and always believed it was poised for continued growth, further solidifying its leading position in the gaming industry. I can’t wait to join the team and support the commitment to strategic product innovation. I look forward to bringing my experience to bear as we explore ways to maximize shareholder value, ensuring Galaxy Gaming remains at the forefront of industry excellence.”
