GTECH Reorganizes Americas Team

GTECH S.p.A. has reorganized its Americas management team to meet customers’ growing needs for an integrated offering across multiple gaming channels, including lottery, VLT, commercial casino and interactive gaming. It has also created a new Lottery Management Services structure to meet lotteries’ increasing needs for greater efficiency and reliable profits through private or outsourced management services provided by GTECH.

According to the company, the new management team, which reports to GTECH Americas President and CEO Jaymin B. Patel, is designed to anticipate opportunities to help customers build their player bases due to rapid changes in the Americas gaming landscape, including the growth of regulated interactive gaming, accelerating use of mobile technology, and the convergence between land-based and interactive gaming technologies.

The reorganized Americas management team reflects the following changes:

• Alan Eland becomes senior vice president and chief operating officer, North America.

• Jay Gendron becomes senior vice president, United States.

• Victor Duarte becomes senior vice president, North American commercial gaming.

• Matteo Monteverdi becomes senior vice president, Americas interactive.

• Connie Laverty O’Connor becomes senior vice president and chief customer officer.

In addition, the Lottery Management Services team has been created to leverage GTECH’s operational expertise and best practices drawn from its experience as a private manager/outsourced operator in Illinois, Indiana and New Jersey. Marco Tasso, senior vice president, lottery management services, will lead this new team.
