Scientific Games' Schweinfurth Retiring

Scott Schweinfurth, executive vice president, chief financial officer and corporate secretary of Scientific Games Corporation, retired at the end of 2015, according to an announcement by the company.

Schweinfurth was chief financial officer of the former WMS during the slot-maker’s resurgence to near the top of the slot market. He joined Scientific Games when it acquired WMS. For the past year, he has been helping with the integration of the former Bally Technologies after that $5.1 billion acquisition by Scientific Games.

Schweinfurth will continue as CFO through the year-end financial audit and filing of Scientific Games’ Form 10-K, and the appointment of his successor. According to the company, he will work closely with Scientific Games management to ensure a smooth and successful transition of responsibilities.

The company has initiated a search process and retained Egon Zehnder, a leading executive search firm. The company will consider both internal and external candidates to fill the CFO position.
