Lauren O’Brien

Regional Sales Manager - Gaming Operations, Aristocrat Technologies

Lauren O’Brien

Global Gaming Women was founded under the auspices of the American Gaming Association more than 10 years ago with a goal for female gaming professionals to learn from one another, create lasting connections and nurture emerging women leaders. In 2016, Global Gaming Women became an independent charitable organization and upped its game on its services to its members. Lauren O’Brien has benefited from the efforts of GGW via its “lean in” program that offers mentorship opportunities from senior female executive in the industry. Now the regional sales manager for gaming operations at Aristocrat, O’Brien has worked for several gaming suppliers including Interblock and Bally Technologies. She spoke with GGB Publisher Roger Gros about her experience with GGW in December.
