3M Touch Systems has appointed Jon Temple (pictured) as Gaming Sales Manager for Europe, Middle East and Africa.
Formerly sales manager for the UK and Ireland, Temple will be responsible for managing key customer accounts, developing new business and coordinating sales activities for gaming within the region.
Temple has five years of experience working in the touch screen industry, with the vast majority of this experience concentrated on the casino and gaming segments. In his new role Temples objective is to build on 3Ms current position as a leader in touch screen technology and acquire even greater market share through retention of existing business and growth via strategic targeting of new customer groups.
