GLI Executives Recognized

Gaming Laboratories International announced recognitions of two of its top executives for honors at the recent Global Gaming Expo trade show.

First, Christie Eickelman, GLI’s vice president of global marketing and member of the company’s executive leadership team, was honored with the Patty Becker Pay It Forward award. The award, a set of bangle bracelets, is presented annually at the Global Gaming Women’s (GGW) fundraiser and networking event, Kick Up Your Heels.

A visual representation of courage, integrity and leadership, the bracelet signifies women who have helped other women be successful. Eickelman has been co-chair of the GGW events committee, planning GGW outreach programs, breakfasts and lunches at numerous events. Her efforts have increased GGW’s visibility and increased initial contact with GGW for many women in the workplace.

Second, while at G2E, GLI Vice President of Government Relations and General Counsel Kevin P. Mullally, who is also on the executive leadership team, was appointed by the National Council on Problem Gambling (NCPG) to chair its Standards, Policy and Regulations Committee for the 2016-2017 term. As the author of the first self-exclusion program in the U.S. in 1996, Mullally has a long history of involvement in assisting with the development of responsible gaming policies.
