After two years as chief executive officer for Aristocrat Gaming, Atul Bali will move on as president of gaming at a Seattle media group called RealNetworks and move to Las Vegas.
Bali has over 20 years of international industry experience. He will manage RealNetworks' games portfolio which includes its Slingo brand plus the GameHouse and Zylom game distribution networks.
"We are delighted to have Atul join Real and lead our games business into the future," said Rob Glaser, chairman and interim CEO of RealNetworks.
"Atul is a widely respected leader in the land-based and digital gaming spaces with deep expertise, strong relationships, proven leadership skills, and a passion for games. He is precisely the right person to lead the reinvention of our games business."
On Tuesday Bali said: "Under Rob's guidance, Real has a long history of innovation and leadership in the gaming industry. This year, Real will debut its next generation Slingo game, the first since Real acquired Slingo one year ago. So it's an exciting time to join this dynamic team."
