Two new members have joined AGEM’s board of directors. Luke Orchard, senior vice president, chief compliance and risk management officer at casino slot machine and lottery services provider International Game Technology Plc (IGT), was appointed a vice president of the trade association. Robert Parente, senior vice president and chief revenue officer at Scientific Games Corp’s gaming division, has also joined the AGEM board as a vice president.
Other re-elected officers included: secretary – Mark Dunn, executive vice president and general counsel at slot machine maker Aristocrat Leisure Ltd; treasurer – Thomas Jingoli, executive vice president and chief commercial officer for casino equipment maker Konami Gaming Inc; and general counsel – Daron Dorsey, general counsel for North American operations at slot machine supplier Ainsworth Game Technology Ltd.
