IGT Refreshes Leadership with New Appointments

The appointments will support the company’s vision for “its new era of growth and transformation”

International Game Technology, a global leader in the provision of gaming content, has unveiled new additions to its board and executive team.

First of all, Marco Drago decided to step down from his role as a non-executive director. He will remain with the company until the official end of his term and will depart after the Annual General Meeting on May 14.

Marco Drago has served as a NED on the IGT board since the formation of the company in 2015. He has also served a number of other influential companies and boasts more than 55 years of professional experience. 

In the meantime, Marco Drago’s son, Enrico Drago, will join IGT’s board of directors as a NED. He will resign from his current role as CEO of IGT’s PlayDigital division.

Enrico Drago became IGT PlayDigital’s CEO in September 2021 after first serving three years as the business’ senior vice president. He has some 25 years of professional experience, IGT added.

Speaking of PlayDigital, the brand will be joined by Gil Rotem, who will step down from his position as president of iGaming to serve as the division’s new president. In this position, Rotem will report directly to IGT’s CEO, Vince Sadusky.

Rotem joined IGT in 2021, first serving as the president of iGaming for PlayDigital. In this position, he helped the division secure the acquisition of iSoftBet and grow its games portfolio and engagement tools suite. With over 20 years of experience behind his back and 15 years of experience at bet365, Rotem is well-suited to lead the IGT PlayDigital business. 

The aforementioned changes will go into effect on April 1.

Marco Sala, IGT’s executive chairman, commented on the matter, thanking Marco Drago for his years of service and commitment. He also welcomed Enrico Drago on board, saying that his promotion is a “natural evolution” that will support the company’s vision for “its new era of growth and transformation.”

Enrico’s value-creation mindset and understanding of global growth opportunities will enhance the Board and align with IGT’s strategic priorities.
