Walter Bugno, executive vice president of new business and strategic initiatives at International Game Technology Plc (IGT), has resigned from the firm “to pursue a new professional opportunity”. The announcement was made by the casino and lottery technology provider in a press release published on Monday.

Mr Sala added: “His efforts have made meaningful contributions to the strength of our global leadership.”
Following Mr. Bugno’s departure, IGT responsibilities under ‘new business’ will be divided among the global lottery and global gaming business units, the firm said .
It added that responsibilities for strategic initiatives would be “assumed by the IGT strategy and corporate development support function”.
The press release did not provide further detail about Mr Bugno’s new path.
