Geoff Freeman departed the American Gaming Association as of August 1. But his five-year tenure at the AGA will continue to resonate. Taking over for a legend, the first and long-serving CEO Frank Fahrenkopf, Freeman fundamentally changed how the AGA was structured and conducted operations. Not as politically connected as Fahrenkopf—the former head of the Republican Party—Freeman focused on expanding membership, creating alliances, and finally on the drive for legalized sports betting. His interview was part of the cover story of the August issue of GGB, which focused on the future of the AGA. He spoke with GGB Publisher Roger Gros in the AGA offices in June.
