MEET THE A-TEAM

John Acres

Founder

John is the inventor of the first player tracking system, as well as progressives and bonusing games that pretty much define today’s gaming experience. At Acres, he’s the founder and visionary – sort of the disruptor in chief. It’s his job to challenge the common assumptions of team members and clients alike, which results in shared vision, shared progress, and – most importantly – shared success.


Alan McCollum

General Counsel

As General Counsel, Alan’s primary job is protecting the considerable intellectual property developed by Acres. On any given day, you’ll find him eyeballs deep in matters of business operations and technology – helping the company define new areas of exploration, and protecting the ground we’ve already covered.


Andrew King

Senior Software Engineer

Andrew is one of the brains behind the Kai iOS application. That means he’s responsible for every moment Kai makes things easier, more intuitive and more profitable. He also works with the support team to make sure Kai evolves ahead of the curve of the industry. Like the solution he’s helped create, Andrew is forward-thinking, a team-player, and immensely intelligent.


Bill Oliver

Senior Software Engineer

Bill is the guy who turns an idea into innovation. As the engineer behind Acres solutions both past and present, he implements rigorous testing protocols as well as ongoing customer support. He has experience in both hardware and software development, which gives him a unique perspective on creating the solutions that are changing gaming.


Ryan Matthews

Lead Web Developer

Ryan is a big fan of change. That’s why he focuses on developing the tools that enable customers to address their challenges, no matter how they might evolve. Ryan’s role is to make solutions that are as individualized as the people who use them. After all, no two customers are alike, so no two tools should be the same, either.


Shaun Bisiaux

Director of Support

Shaun makes sure every support call is handled with timeliness and professionalism. He’s helped build a support system that puts the engineers themselves on the front lines -- that means when you need help, chances are you’re getting it from the professional who helped build the solution in the first place.


Mark Dailey

Chief Technology Architect

Mark has been developing complex gaming applications for more than a quarter of a century. At Acres, this extensive experience enables him to leverage cloud infrastructure in surprising new ways. Mark’s played a huge role in many of the gaming systems in operation today – as well as the solutions that will change the industry in the future.


Noah Acres

Vice President of Sales

To Noah, it’s more than selling. For every product he moves, he’s actually operating as an agent of change. That means it’s less about making the sale and more about enabling clients to imagine how their business can be more efficient and more profitable...and then making that vision a reality.


Dan Wey

Administrative Manager

Dan makes what the rest of the team does possible. He keeps the essential office functions humming along seamlessly, providing a solid foundation of management, HR coordination, and above-and-beyond capabilities like proofreading, training, documentation, licensing, planning and more.
