The National Center for Responsible Gaming last month announced Alan M. Feldman, senior vice president of public affairs for MGM Resorts International, has been named the new chairman of the organization’s board of directors. Feldman replaces Glenn C. Christenson, managing director of the investment firm Velstand Investments, LLC, who has served as chairman of the board of directors for three years and will remain on the board. The NCRG board also elected Mark Vander Linden, executive officer of the Office of Gambling Treatment and Prevention at the Iowa Department of Public Health, to join as a board member.
“Alan has long been a strong voice in the gaming industry on issues of responsible gaming and finding effective methods for addressing gambling disorders,” Christenson said. “He has an unwavering commitment to the NCRG. I am delighted to remain on the NCRG board to support Alan’s leadership as the NCRG continues to address these issues through peer-reviewed research and public education.”
Feldman has served on the NCRG board since 2000.
