Gaming Supply Executive Bob McMonigle Passes Away

In March, the gaming world mourned the passing of former IGT executive Bob McMonigle.

McMonigle, 75, succumbed to complications of injuries sustained in an accident.

After graduating from Southeast Missouri State College in Cape Girardeau, McMonigle went to work in the magazine business in New York City, doing stints with Readers Digest, Rolling Stone and Outside magazines. He worked as an executive in the magazine distribution business from 1979 to 1986, then joined a small but growing slot company, International Game Technology. Under the leadership of Chuck Mathewson, McMonigle and a powerful team built IGT into the dominant company in the business for almost two decades.

McMonigle later worked for several other gaming companies, including Gardner Wells/AGT, Suzo Happ, and finally Aristocrat Technologies, where he was employed as a consultant at the time of his death. He helped to found the Association of Gaming Equipment Manufacturers, which today represents more than 175 companies that serve the gaming business.
