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.
