As Director of Sales at Yellofin, Paul has always had a little bit of MacGyver in him and it goes beyond his beautifully sculpted Mullet in high school. Paul’s ability to create a business from a pair of pliers, some string and duct tape has been his superpower.
Paul’s career has always been about building companies. Paul has been founding, co-founding and working with startups for more than 20 years.
Paul specializes in helping companies take a concept, market test it and then successfully bring it to the marketplace. This is where his MacGyver skills come in handy.
Paul has learned not to overthink a concept, but to quickly create a strategy, take it to the market to get feedback and let the customers tell you how to best proceed. Then build the company around the needs of the customers.
One of Paul’s greatest strengths is his ability to find a simplified solution to what looks to be a complicated problem.
Paul is an expert at partnership development.
Paul has founded Electronic Sports (Acquired 2001), and been part of founding teams with successful startups such as Dude I need A Truck and Staff Ranker, Inc.

As Director of Sales at Yellofin, Mike’s career path has been modeled after Daniel LaRusso. Like Daniel-son, Mike didn’t realize at the time that he was being trained.
Wax On, Wax Off: Mike started his career as an engineer, learning, and mastering the project scope to completion skills and managing technical projects.
Sand The Floor: After mastering engineering skills, Mike entered the gaming industry as an analyst at Harrah’s Entertainment (now Caesars). He learned the gaming industry from the operator side, continuously honing his gaming analytical skills.
Paint The Fence: Concurrent working back of house, Mike worked overtime for free as Assistant Casino Manager on the floor at Harrah’s Las Vegas on Friday swing shift. This was to proactively gain more skills, while Mr. Miyagi went fishing.
Paint The House: Mike took his skills to Konami Gaming where he was Director of Product Management. He built a team, created the product analytics strategy, and developed the product plan. Gaming became muscle memory.
Now all of Mike’s skills learned from his varied background are put into practice to win the All-Valley Karate Tournament for Yellofin’s customers.

As the founder and owner of Yellofin, Sam’s career path has been modeled after Rocky Balboa.
Sam’s sales career started at PAR Technology, a leading point of sale (POS) company based in New York. Jumping in right out of college made Sam an immediate underdog.
That first sale was Sam’s “Apollo“. People counted him out.
But Sam kept training. He had the Eye of the Tiger. And soon became a legend as the top sales person at PAR.
After 13 years at PAR, Sam moved on to a new challenge as Director of Sales at Konami Gaming in Las Vegas. Nobody gave Rocky a chance to beat Ivan Drago, as few people thought that Sam would succeed in the gaming industry.
However, with Sam’s unconventional methods, i.e. caring more about the success of his customers than just closing the sale, Sam not only met, but he far exceeded his quotas with Konami.
Now Sam owns his own company called Yellofin utilizing his years of experience in both POS and gaming, and leading with the simple mission to be ultimate champ of providing service and honesty to Yellofin’s customers.
Signature Systems, Inc.: Vice President of Sales and Business Development (current)
Gamblit Gaming: Senior Account Executive
R2 Gaming: Vice President Sales and Business Development
Konami Gaming: Director of Sales – Regional Games & Systems Business Development
PAR Technology: Director of Sales and Business Partner Development – North America
Pepperdine University: Master of Business Administration
University of Rochester: Bachelor or Arts, Religion and Classics
Yellofin, Inc. started with a vision for casino resorts
With considerable experience in both the Point-of-Sale business and the gaming industry, Sam knows first hand that casinos and resorts only had two choices for POS: a legacy product that hadn’t been improved in years, and one that required far too much integration from developers that are usually overseas.
Sam saw an opportunity. Casinos and resorts should no longer have to rely on hard to configure POS systems, that required too much development, and are a challenge to integrate with their property.
Enter Signature Systems, Inc. (SSI), aka the best point of sale you’ve never heard of. Sam found the Ace-In-Hole for casinos. SSI’s capabilities to integrate an entire casino resort, while all development is done in-house, is exactly what the gaming industry needs.
Yellofin is a sales agent for SSI, covering the gaming vertical, in order to provide casinos and resorts a point of sale alternative that actually works for you.
