Harris Joins Global Market Advisors

Becky Harris, former chairwoman of the Nevada Gaming Control Board, has joined Global Market Advisors (GMA), a leader in the gaming, entertainment, sports, integrated resort and hospitality industries.

Harris has a diverse background as a lawyer, legislator, regulator and academic. She is currently a Distinguished Fellow in Gaming and Leadership of the University of Nevada, Las Vegas’ International Gaming Institute, and will serve as a regulatory, policy and legal consultant at GMA.

Harris recently finished her term as chairwoman of the Nevada Gaming Control Board, and was the first woman to hold the position. As chief regulator for the NGCB—which is viewed as the gold standard in gaming regulation—she helped guide the board through a number of important and controversial matters including sports betting, the Wire Act, sexual harassment issues, cannabis and other key regulatory issues.

Harris also serves as a non-executive director for PointsBet Holdings Ltd.
