It is with the deepest sense of shock and the most profound regret that Novomatic subsidiary AGI Africa Pty Ltd must announce the sudden death, on June 27th, of the company’s Sales & Marketing Manager Rolph Gieske (46), after a short illness.
Widely respected as a true gentleman and a leading gaming industry professional, Rolph Gieske was a familiar face at the world’s leading trade exhibitions and also across Africa from the AGI Africa’s South African base in Midrand, Gauteng. He will be much missed throughout the international gaming industry and beyond.
Further details are not being released at this sad time but it is expected that a fuller and more fitting tribute will be published in due course. Professor Johann F. Graf, the management and entire Novomatic team extend their sincere condolences to Rolph Gieske’s family and many friends around the world.
