Scientific Games Extends Isaacs' Contract

The board of directors of casino and lottery supplier Scientific Games Corporation has extended the management agreement of Chief Executive Officer Gavin Isaacs by one year. The extension is a vote of confidence in Isaacs, who has spent the past year heading consolidation efforts for the newly merged supplier.

Isaacs took the helm at Scientific Games just before it completed its acquisition of WMS Gaming, and oversaw the acquisition and absorption of Bally Technologies, a company for which he had once served as COO. In a securities filing quoted by the Las Vegas Review-Journal, the company’s board said Isaacs had achieved “key business objectives, including integration milestones” in successfully integrating the operations of former companies Bally, WMS and SHFL

entertainment (where he had served as CEO) with longtime lottery industry leader Scientific Games.
