“Rebecca continues to blaze trails in the lottery industry, and lotteries across the globe will go on benefitting from her vast experience,” said WLA board of directors chair Susan Lanigan.
Hargrove has held several leadership positions within WLA, including senior vice president and chair of its Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) Committee, and is the founding chair of the Women’s Initiative in Lottery Leadership, a program designed to support the advancement of women into top positions of lottery management, leadership and responsibility.
Hargrove has also served as president or chair of all offices of the North American Association of State and Provincial Lotteries and the Multi-State Lottery Association, as well as serving as president of the international industry organization A.I.L.E.
“I appreciate the continued support from WLA members, and I look forward to continuing the hard work of the WLA and what it does best: sharing best practices so lotteries worldwide raise money for good causes and their beneficiaries,” Hargrove said.
