New York-listed gaming supplier AGS has appointed former American Gaming Association (AGA) president Geoff Freeman to its board of directors.

Freeman joins the AGS board as an independent director, having recently stepped down from his role as president and CEO of the AGA in August, and taken on a new role heading up the Grocery Manufacturers Association.

"We are excited to welcome Geoff as a new independent director to the AGS board,” said AGS president and CEO David Lopez. “Not only does he have a proven track record of effecting significant positive change in our industry, he is a recognized and respected business leader who brings deep strategic, operational, and market development experiences that span across multiple industries.

“Geoff is an extraordinary executive and a great cultural fit who brings a new perspective to our board and will be invaluable to the continued growth and success of AGS."

Following his appointment, Freeman commented: "I'm honored to join the AGS board of directors at such an exciting time in the company's growth journey. Having worked closely with David Lopez and the entire AGS leadership team on numerous initiatives, including their annual GameON Customer Summit, I'm excited to help this passionate, experienced, innovative, and intelligent team take the company to the next level.

“I have tremendous respect for the AGS board, and I look forward to working with them to help AGS continue its momentum."
