Chickasaw Leader Lance Nominated to Aristocrat Board

Aristocrat Leisure Limited announced that Bill G. Lance Jr. has been nominated as a non-executive director of the company’s board of directors, subject to relevant regulatory approvals.

A prominent Native American tribal leader in the United States, Lance was the longest-serving secretary of commerce in the history of the Chickasaw Nation, a major Oklahoma-based tribe, where he was responsible for 7,000 employees and more than 60 gaming, hospitality, retail and media commercial operations.

Upon stepping down as secretary of commerce, Lance was given the honorary title of the Chickasaw Nation’s secretary of state as part of a planned succession. Lance is also a member of the board of the Chickasaw Foundation and serves on the board of directors of the NASDAQ-listed company BancFirst. He previously served as a member of the board of trustees for the University of Oklahoma Foundation, the Oklahoma Department of Commerce Advisory Council, and as a regent for the University of Arts and Sciences of Oklahoma.
