New York-listed gaming operator and supplier International Game Technology (IGT) has expanded its senior leadership team with three new appointments.

Bob Vincent has been named chairperson of IGT Global Solutions Corporation, the primary operating subsidiary of the US lottery business, effective April 8th.

Vincent will serve as a senior consultant to IGT CEO Marco Sala and the rest of IGT's senior leadership team. He previously served as executive vice president for administrative services and external relations, having joined the company in 1996.

Wendy Montgomery joins IGT’s senior leadership team as senior vice president of global brand, marketing, and communications, effective immediately.

She will report directly to Sala and oversee the strategy for IGT's global brand, trade shows, and external communications, including community relations, responsible gaming, and corporate social responsibility.

Prior to joining IGT in 2018 as SVP of global lottery marketing, she spent 13 years at the Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation where she led marketing, sales, operations, policy and planning, and the iGaming business.

IGT has also promoted Scott Gunn to SVP of corporate public affairs with immediate effect.

Reporting directly to Sala, Gunn will be responsible for public affairs related to government relations strategy. He has been with the company for more than 24 years and has held positions in operations, sales, business development, and public affairs.

"Bob, Wendy, and Scott are all seasoned industry professionals with specialised individual skills who bring great value to IGT,” said Sala. “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.

“IGT is constantly evolving to maintain our position as the industry leader in gaming, and I am confident that these appointments will positively impact our business and serve us well in the coming years."
