Upper Deck announced on Tuesday evening that it has hired Paul Meyer as its new president.

“I’ve been following Upper Deck for years and I am confident I can provide the kind of senior leadership the company needs, given my background in consumer products and operations improvement,” said Meyer, who most recently served as President and Chief Operating Officer for Shuffle Master Inc., a gaming company.

During his five years with Shuffle Master, Meyer helped grow the company’s revenue from $58 million to $200 million. He also helped expand the company’s international presence.  Meyer previously served as president of the Integrated Solutions Division of Concurrent Computer Corporation. He has worked in several industries, including toy manufacturing, video game developing and publishing and turnaround/restructuring consulting.

Meyer’s track record made him a terrific candidate for Upper Deck owner and CEO Richard McWilliam.

“Paul is a proven leader who possesses enormous experience in a broad range of businesses, which made it compelling for me to bring him on board as our new President,” said McWilliam. “As a company, we look forward to having Paul help lead us during 2010 and beyond.”
