Alan Feldman, who spent 29 years as a senior executive with MGM Resorts International and Mirage Resorts, recently joined International Gaming Institute (IGI) at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas as a Distinguished Fellow in Responsible Gaming. Feldman, whose appointment began May 1, will lead IGI’s responsible gaming efforts, including further developing programs and policies to advance knowledge and capabilities within the industry and regulatory community.
This fellowship will support IGI’s mission of promoting international best practices in responsible gaming at a time when integrated resorts are entering more jurisdictions than ever. IGI actively conducts responsible gaming research and related training programs, including a report and related work that led to the approval of integrated resorts in Japan.
Prior to his recent departure from MGM, Feldman spearheaded the launch of GameSense—an innovative, player-focused national responsible gambling program that encourages players to adopt behaviors and attitudes that can reduce the risk of developing gambling disorders.
Feldman continues to advise MGM on its ongoing efforts to improve the planning, development and implementation of responsible gaming policies and programs.
