Gaming Laboratories International (GLI) has appointed former Montana Lottery director Angela Wong as director of lottery.
“I’m thrilled to join the prestigious GLI team and for the opportunity to contribute my experience and knowledge to the success of its clients during this exciting and dynamic time in the lottery industry,” Wong stated.
In her new role, Wong will serve as an essential resource for lottery clients and work with lottery suppliers and technology vendors to facilitate end-to-end success in the lottery industry. She will identify technical and business challenges facing US and international lotteries and develop a strategy for engagement and serving of lottery-related needs in every region of the world.
Prior to joining GLI, Wong was director of the Montana Lottery, where she earned an international reputation for her leadership and innovative approach. She is the immediate past president of the North American States and Provincial Lotteries (NASPL), where she also held multiple leadership positions over 10 years. She is also the immediate past vice president of the Multi-State Lottery Association (MUSL).
Wong will work alongside GLI’s SVP of government relations and general counsel Kevin Mullally and will join the eight other GLI team members with senior lottery or regulatory leadership experience with a government agency.
“This is an exciting time for the global lottery industry and many jurisdictions are undergoing transformation that will define them for decades,” Mullally said. “Angela’s knowledge of the lottery industry and her global network of industry stakeholders will be an invaluable element in GLI’s continuing work to help our clients succeed.”
