The industry-leading tech giant has announced a reshuffling in its leadership. Indeed, Scientific Games (SG) has promoted three key executives to new roles. In essence, the company promoted Jim Kennedy, Patrick McHugh, and Jordan Levin. With their ascent, the company aims to strengthen its management ahead of the new year, and the challenges that 2019 might bring to the sector.
Changes in Lottery
In short, in 2019 Jim Kennedy becomes the new Chairman of the Lottery division for the company. Before, he served as the Executive VP and CEO. Following the news, the latest board member said.
“I’m very proud of what we have built at Scientific Games. We are the number one lottery company in the world. We provide our customers with the best casino slots, products, and services. I’ll help the team drive record growth.”
But the lottery division of the company is getting yet another member! Indeed, Patrick McHugh and his 25 years of experience in the sector makes him the perfect candidate to replace Jim Kennedy as the new CEO. Until recently, the man served as the Senior VP for the Global Lottery Systems. As Barry Cottle pointed out when the news went public, McHugh’s experience in the sector makes him the optimal new leader for the division.
Even more changes to the Digital branch of SG!
If you remember, only a few weeks ago we reported that Karolina Pelc was taking on a new role with the company. In fact, the ex LeoVegas Leader is to become VP of the digital branch. Yet, it seems that SG still wanted to improve its digital team.
Indeed, in a recent press release, Barry Cottle informed us that Jordan Levin will now be the top man for the Digital branch. Before that, he led the Acquisition and the Integration of NYX. He’s also the person behind the launch of SG’s Interactive division.
All these changes are leading us to believe that SG is predicting massive growth, or at least they’re hoping for a lot of innovation in 2019. SG is the world leader in online entertainment. It provides the industry with cutting-edge games, system, and services. And they show no signs of slowing down in 2019!
