The merger of Scientific Games with WMS and later Bally Technologies created a wagering giant. The convergence of lottery and gaming finally became a reality, and Kevin Sheehan was soon brought in as president and CEO to manage the complicated business. Sheehan has experience repositioning companies like Norwegian Cruise Lines, Avis and Budget Rent-a-Car, and the Spanish language television station, Telemundo. At Scientific Games, he has cut costs, increased innovation and led a share price increase of more than 200 percent. He spoke with GGB Publisher Roger Gros and Editor Frank Legato at the Scientific Games offices in Las Vegas in January.
