David Lucchese, executive vice president for games at Everi Holdings Inc – formerly Global Cash Access Holdings Inc – was selected for a new term as second vice president at AGEM. Everi is a casino gaming equipment and payment solutions provider.

The election included the appointment of two co-general counsels. They are Harper Ko (re-elected), deputy general counsel for gaming at Scientific Games; and Daron Dorsey, general counsel for North American operations at Ainsworth Game Technology Ltd.
