Before becoming Vice President at Chicago Gaming Company (CGC), Doug was Vice President of Business Development, in which role he spearheaded the company’s drive into remaking classic Williams/Bally pinball machines starting with Medieval Madness and continuing with Attack from Mars.  The third title – widely rumoured to be Monster Bash – appears to have run into difficulties and missed the scheduled unveiling at the Texas Pinball Festival in March 2018.  At the time of Doug’s departure there had still been no official announcement.

Doug’s new role at Stern Pinball is to look after the day-to-day export business, taking over some of the duties previously handled by company CEO Gary Stern.

Gary is keen to point out that this doesn’t represent his standing down or retirement, merely that the export business has grown beyond his ability to manage it in addition to his CEO duties.  “I will still be involved with the export markets and always available for our export customers, and for that matter all of our customers“, he said.

Here’s how Stern Pinball announced Doug’s appointment.

Appoints Doug Skor as Director of Export Sales

ELK GROVE VILLAGE, IL – May 29, 2018 – Stern Pinball, Inc., a global lifestyle brand based on the iconic and outrageously fun modern American game of pinball, announced today the appointment of Doug Skor as Director of Export Sales. Doug will report to Chief Revenue Officer, John Buscaglia and work alongside Founder and Chief Executive Officer, Gary Stern, to service and grow export markets.

Doug’s past positions include serving as Vice President of the Skor family owned commercial distribution company World Wide Distributing, President of  Deutsche Wurlitzer USA, Vice President of EDC Gaming and Vice President of Chicago Gaming Company.

“I have known Doug for decades, both through our families’ friendship and his game business activities. He is well known and experienced in the amusement game industry, both domestically and abroad,” said Gary Stern, CEO of Stern Pinball.

Gary went on, “I am not retiring. With Stern’s growth, I can’t be day-to-day responsive as the export salesman and perform my CEO duties.”
