LAS VEGAS, NV (October 4, 2016) – Gaming Laboratories International (GLI®) has wrapped up another successful Global Gaming Expo (G2E). Focused on their world-class services and one-stop-shop offerings, the company urged current and potential customers to “leave nothing to chance” when it comes to quality testing, certification and professional services.
GLI is proud to announce a couple of honors that happened during G2E. First, GLI’s Vice President of Global Marketing and member of the company’s executive leadership team, Christie Eickelman was honored with the Patty Becker Pay It Forward award. The award, a set of bangle bracelets, is presented annually at the Global Gaming Women’s (GGW) fundraiser and networking event, Kick Up Your Heels. A visual representation of courage, integrity and leadership, the bracelet signifies women who have helped other women be successful. Eickelman has been co-chair of the GGW events committee, planning GGW outreach programs, breakfasts and lunches at numerous events. Her efforts have increased GGW’s visibility and increased initial contact with GGW for many women in the workplace.
Eickelman said, “Being presented with an award like this is a huge honor because it not only outwardly recognizes the hard work each recipient has performed to help other women in gaming, but also gives women something to strive for in their own careers. I enjoy mentoring others and will continue to do so.”
Second, while at G2E, GLI’s Vice President of Government Relations and General Counsel Kevin P. Mullally, who is also on the executive leadership team, was appointed by the National Council on Problem Gambling (NCPG) to Chair its Standards, Policy and Regulations Committee for the 2016-2017 term. As the author of the first self-exclusion program in the U.S. in 1996, Mullally has a long history of involvement in assisting with the development of responsible gaming policies.
Mullally said, “I am honored to be able to continue my long affiliation with the National Council on Problem Gambling and look forward to working with my exceptionally talented committee members to analyze the many important policy issues relating to the implementation of quality responsible gaming education, prevention and treatment programs.”
NCPG Executive Director Keith S. Whyte said, “Kevin brings a wealth of experience to this important committee, and it has been my pleasure to work with him for many years. He remains at the forefront of global gaming policy and developments in responsible gaming, and I’m grateful for his leadership on this important committee.”
GLI’s President and CEO James R. Maida said, “I am very proud of Christie and Kevin’s accomplishments. These announcements came at a great time – just as another successful year of G2E concluded. Our team of professionals works very hard to provide our customers with the best solutions for their needs, and awards and appointments like Christie and Kevin’s are just a testament to how hard our employees work to better themselves so that we, in turn, can offer higher knowledge transfers to our clients. We are looking forward to G2E 2017.”
Apart from ICE 2017 in February, where GLI will be present in stand N3-210, GLI’s professionals are preparing for the North American Regulators Roundtable, which will take place at Luxor Las Vegas March 15 and 16.
