Scientific Games Names COO

Scientific Games last month named Karin-Joyce (“KJ”) Tjon as chief operating officer and president. Her responsibilities will include oversight of the gaming and lottery operations and driving the company’s organizational strategy, business development and fiscal discipline.

Tjon will report directly to Scientific Games’ Chief Executive Officer Kevin Sheehan, who said, “We have tremendous confidence in KJ’s ability to lead our long-term growth strategy and execution, and continue the strong growth across all of our businesses. Her deep experience in international finance, performance accountability, and culture transformation will further enhance our ability to deliver for our customers, employees and our shareholders.”

She joins Scientific Games after serving two years as chief financial officer and executive vice president of Epiq Systems, a provider of integrated technology and services for the legal profession, where she oversaw legal, corporate governance, risk compliance, and all aspects of international corporate finance.
