The Interactive Gaming Council has named Keith Furlong as its new chief executive officer. The appointment was announced at the 2014 ICE conference in London. Furlong will replace outgoing CEO John Kennedy FitzGerald.
Furlong has served as the deputy executive director of the Vancouver-based trade association since 2000, and has been involved with casino regulation and online gaming for more than 15 years.
Previously, he was the public information officer and legislative liaison for the New Jersey Division of Gaming Enforcement in the attorney general’s office. He will remain as a member of the IGC board of directors.
Furlong’s prior service on the board was due to his position as vice president and principal of Catania Gaming Consultants, an international gaming consultancy.
