Two GLI executives, Christie Eickelman and Kevin Mullally, received special industry honours at this year’s G2E.
[dropcap]F[/dropcap]ocusing on its world-class services and one-stop-shop offerings, Gaming Laboratories International (GLI) wrapped up another successful G2E after urging current and potential customers to “leave nothing to chance” when it comes to quality testing, certification and professional services.
During the show this year, GLI’s vice president of global marketing and member of the company’s executive leadership team, Christie Eickelman was honoured 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.
“Being presented with an award like this is a huge honour because it not only outwardly recognises 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,” Eickelman said. I enjoy mentoring others and will continue to do so.”
I am honoured to be able to continue my long affiliation with the NCPG and look forward to working with my exceptionally talented committee members to analyse the many important policy issues relating to the implementation of quality responsible gaming education, prevention and treatment programmes
Second, while at G2E, GLI’s vice president of government relations and general counsel Kevin 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 US in 1996, Mullally has a long history of involvement in assisting with the development of responsible gaming policies.
Mullally said: “I am honoured to be able to continue my long affiliation with the NCPG and look forward to working with my exceptionally talented committee members to analyse the many important policy issues relating to the implementation of quality responsible gaming education, prevention and treatment programmes.”
