Scientific Games adds three new employees to its leadership team

Scientific Games has strengthened its leadership team by announcing three new additions to the company. 

Matt Wilson will join the company as Executive Vice President and Group Chief Executive in March, while Siobhan Lane will assume the position of Chief Commercial Officer next month.

Connie James has assumed the role of Chief Financial Officer, having started on the 6th of January. Due to these recent acquisitions, Derik Mooberry, who has served as the Gaming Group Chief Executive, will be transitioning to a strategic advisory role to support the new leadership team.

“We have assembled an impressive leadership team that will complement the existing leaders and talent in our business, further strengthening our great organisation and enabling our future potential,” said Scientific Games President and CEO Barry Cottle

“We are committed to making great games and products players and partners love. A strong team of passionate people is the foundation of any great business and will further solidify our position as the world leader in gaming entertainment.”

All three new employees join the firm with a wealth of experience. Wilson was former Aristocrat President & Managing Director, Americas; Lane has over 12 years’ experience in the Gaming industry and James previously served as the Chief Financial Officer of the global, land-based Gaming division at Aristocrat Technologies.

Scientific Games’ announcement comes off the back of securing agreements with both 888 Casino and Betsson. The company will launch more than 120 games in Spain via its Open Gaming System (OGS) platform.
