IGT Hires New CFO and Treasurer

IGT CEO Patti S. Hart last month announced John Vandemore is joining the company as chief financial officer and treasurer.

“We are pleased to be adding John’s financial experience, strategic leadership and energy to IGT,” said Hart.

Vandemore comes to IGT from the Walt Disney Company, where he most recently served as chief financial officer of Walt Disney Imagineering—the creative arm of Disney’s theme parks business—responsible for overseeing multibillion-dollar investments in global theme park, resort and cruise line development projects.

“As we continue to lead and transform the gaming industry, he brings an impressive background in global financial planning and operational excellence that will benefit all of IGT’s stakeholders,” added Hart.

Vandemore replaces Pat Cavanaugh, IGT’s CFO and treasurer for the past three years.

Vandemore will have direct responsibility for overseeing IGT’s internal and external financial reporting, leading IGT’s global financial planning and analysis, and managing all worldwide finance operations inclusive of investor relations, tax, accounting, treasury, credit and audit.
