St. Louis, MO - Clarion Gaming's American office is instituting several staffing changes, including long term online gambling industry leader, Sue Schneider, stepping down from her position as CEO.

Her two year commitment to remain full time in that position after the sale of River City Group to Clarion Events has ended. Mrs. Schneider will continue to act as an advisor for Clarion.

"This is still such a dynamic industry," stated Schneider, "so I'm pleased to continue my relationship with Clarion Gaming to continue to innovate and implement new ideas to serve it."

"It's a marriage based on a proven relationship that will create a powerhouse serving both the land-based and interactive gambling industries," Schneider initially announced when her River City Group merged with Clarion for an undisclosed amount of money in July of 2006, just months before the passage of the Unlawful Internet Gaming Enforcement Act.

Schneider became notorious a few years ago for donning a sumo costume and taking on the founder of Gambling911.com in a bloody grudge match in Montreal, Quebec.  She would lose handily. 

ATE and River City Group had been sister companies, co-producing the European i-Gaming Congress and Expo (EiG) for the past four years. The Barcelona hosted event has become the biggest online gambling conference following Marc Lesnick's Affiliate Gaming Conference held in Amsterdam.

Peter Rusbridge, CEO of Clarion Gaming, noted that a number of new enhanced services will be arising out of the office in St. Louis, Missouri. "We've got over 60 years of i-gaming industry experience among those staff which is amazing for such a nascent industry," he said. "So we're keen to leverage both the knowledge and relationships that they have to continue to grow Clarion Gaming."

Sue Schneider ranks as the second most popular female in the online gambling sector after Gambling911.com reporter Jenny Woo.
