Trombetta to Lead Florida Gaming Control Commission

The Florida Gaming Control Commission, which held its first formal meeting on March 31, has named Louis Trombetta, director of the Division of Pari-Mutuel Wagering at the Department of Business and Professional Regulation (DBPR), as its new executive director. The commission was created last May during a special legislative session, following the passage of a new gaming compact with the Seminole Tribe of Florida. In a separate bill, the commission was established to regulate gambling activities in the state.

Prior to his role at DBPR, Trombetta was counsel for the Division of Pari-Mutuel Wagering. Commission Chairwoman Julie Brown said his experience in gaming and legal issues will help the new agency get off the ground and aid the transition of much of the Division of Pari-Mutuel Wagering’s 109 staffers to the new commission.
