The Association of Gaming Equipment Manufacturers has announced the appointment of gaming industry veteran Daron Dorsey as its new executive director, effective March 1, 2022.


Dorsey will begin his new position next year after previously serving as senior vice president, general counsel and group compliance officer at Ainsworth Game Technology in Las Vegas.

Dorsey has also been an officer and general counsel of AGEM since 2016. In addition to his prior roles with AGEM and Ainsworth, Dorsey served as general counsel for William Hill US after several years of service at two established law firms.

Dorsey’s legal expertise is well documented, as he has been a member of the State Bar of Nevada since 2001 and is admitted to practice before state and federal courts in Nevada, along with the United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit.

His Las Vegas ties run deep and he remains prominently engaged with his alma mater, UNLV. Dorsey currently serves as a trustee for the UNLV Foundation, as well as serving on the Alumni Leadership Circle, Dean’s Advisory Council, Gaming Law Advisory Board and Law Fund for UNLV’s William S Boyd School of Law, where he was honoured as the law school’s Alumnus of the Year in 2017.

Dorsey will be replacing Marcus Prater, who has served as AGEM executive director since 2008.
