LAS VEGAS (June 17, 2021) – “A true sign of a leader is someone who propels others to be leaders.” So says Ellen Whittemore, Executive Vice President, General Counsel and Secretary at Wynn Resorts, Limited in an appearance on Gaming Laboratories International’s (GLI®) web series Illuminating Conversations.
The episode premiered today and is available for streaming now exclusively at https://gaminglabs.com/illuminatingconversations.
Whittemore is an admired gaming executive, and in addition to her role at Wynn Resorts, she is Chair of the Nevada Resorts Association, member of the Executive Committee of the American Gaming Association, an officer of the International Association of Gaming Advisors, and a member of the Board of Directors of Global Gaming Women.
A giant on the gaming industry’s legal scene, in the episode Whittemore talks with series host and GLI CEO James Maida about gaming’s legal history, present, and future. She also gives her take on her landmark work that changed how the global industry considered RNGs and the fairness of gaming devices, her current work Wynn Resorts, and her view on the future of gaming’s legal landscape.
Further, Whittemore discusses her work and larger goals in the areas of leadership, mentoring, diversity, charitable activities, and how her personal north star guides her daily. “Figure out what it is you want to do, and then find the position that helps you do that,” she says.
