Austin, TX (PRWEB) September 04, 2012
Shoutz Inc announced on August 28 that Mark Hutchinson, long time Lottery, Internet, Telecommunications and Television executive, has joined the Shoutz team as Senior Vice President of Gaming to roll out the new mobile platform's lottery, casino and gaming features.
With almost 30 years working in the gaming industry, Hutchinson moved back to the United States in 2000, after working in international gaming markets globally with a focus on Europe and Africa who were particularly advanced in wireless communications content development and use. Mark was recruited to return to the United States to manage the public gaming division of the world's largest gaming company and on conclusion of that agreement he returned to his core business, which was assisting with the start up and ongoing development of government sanctioned and state lotteries worldwide.
Hutchinson has played a vital role in how the gaming industry is marketed and implemented some big sales initiatives. He helped launch Powerball in states such as Kansas, as well as being a part of creating the number one lottery industry game shows, both in and out of the United States.
“Having spent the better part of 25 years in the global lottery industry, the past 15 using world class wireless systems to market lottery products internationally, I am very excited to be a small part of the finest wireless platform and product I have seen anywhere. The marketing abilities and analytics capabilities of Shoutz are a goldmine for the high profile nature of lottery products out there operating in a “fishbowl” for all to see as they say”! Lottery and Casino Marketing Executives along with their advertising agencies will be able to target market and communicate to consumers like never before” Hutchinson says of the new opportunity at Shoutz.
"Having a professional like Mark Hutchinson on the Shoutz team will help us position ourselves in this market," says CEO Jim Mueller of Shoutz. "His expertise in lottery products and workings will prove invaluable while we bring Shoutz forward into this new market. He will help us win big with Shoutz.”
