Global Gaming Business' Annual 25 People to Watch in the Gaming Industry

Power to the People

The 11th annual edition of the Global Gaming Business 25 People to Watch is an eclectic group of influencers. Drawn from every corner of the gaming industry, these 25 individuals have made a name for themselves in their particular niche of the casino business. With intelligence, humor, insight and plain old hard work, these folks have reached the top of their professions and will continue to impact gaming in 2013 and far beyond.

They join a group of more than 275 individuals who have been recognized in this feature in our January issues reaching back to the first year GGB was published. While some of this year’s group have toiled in anonymity, if the history of the 25 People is any indicator, their monikers will become household names for the gaming industry. Like their predecessors, the 25 People to Watch for 2013 are destined to leave their mark on the industry and create innovation, progress and a new paradigm for the business.

Profiles are listed in our Features section in alphabetical order.
