The National Center for Responsible Gaming announced that Glenn C. Christenson, managing director of the investment firm Velstand Investments, LLC, has been named the new chairman of the organization’s board of directors.
Christenson, who has served on the board since 2001, replaces Phil Satre. Satre, the former chairman and CEO of Harrah’s Entertainment, Inc., has served as chairman of the board of directors for three years and will remain on the board as a director.
“Not only has Glenn had a long tenure with the NCRG board and a history of significant involvement with the issues of problem gambling and responsible gaming, he also has a personal commitment to these issues that is truly invaluable,” Satre said. “As a former gaming industry executive, I remain quite passionate about making sure our industry continues to address these issues, and I look forward to continuing to work with Glenn and the rest of the NCRG board to do just that.”
