International Game Technology (IGT) has announced the expansion of its senior leadership team with the appointments of three members to new roles.

Bob Vincent became Chairperson of IGT Global Solutions Corporation, Wendy Montgomery was named Senior Vice President of Global Brand, Marketing, and Communications and Scott Gunn was appointed Senior Vice President of Corporate Public Affairs.

The Big Trio

IGT’s CEO Marco Sala strongly believes that these appointments will have positive impact on their business and serve well in the future since the company strives to maintain its position as the industry leader in gaming.

“Bob, Wendy, and Scott are all seasoned industry professionals with specialised individual skills who bring great value to IGT. I look forward to Bob’s continued contribution as the new chairperson of our operating subsidiary, and I am pleased to have Wendy and Scott join our senior leadership team,” Sala said.

The company named Bob Vincent as chairperson of IGT Global Solutions Corporation, the primary operating subsidiary for the IGT’s U.S. lottery business. Bob will serve as a senior consultant to IGT Chief Executive Officer Marco Sala and the rest of IGT’s senior leadership team starting on 8 April. He was associated with the company ever since 1990 that was operating under the name GTech Holdings. He was promoted from his former position acting as Executive Vice President for Administrative Services and External Relations. Bob Vincent is also a member of several Rhode Island-based boards and committees, including the Rhode Island Hospital Foundation, the University of Rhode Island Foundation and the University’s Harrington School of Communication and Media.

IGT appointed Wendy Montgomery as Senior Vice President of Global Brand, Marketing, and Communications, effective immediately and reporting directly to Sala. She joined IGT a year ago as Senior Vice President of Global Lottery Marketing after spending 13 years with the Ontario (Canada) Lottery and Gaming Corp. Montgomery will overlook the strategy for IGT’S global brand, trade shows and external communications that include community relations, responsible gaming and corporate social responsibility.

The last but not the least addition is Scott Gunn, appointed as Senior Vice President of Corporate Public Affairs. Being with the company for 24 years, he will be responsible for the company’s government relations strategy. Gunn will also direct and facilitate government relationships and public engagement “to advance global business interests for the North American and International business units”.
