International Game Technology PLC has announced that Walter Bugno has resigned from his position of Executive Vice President of New Business and Strategic Initiatives to pursue a new professional opportunity. He will continue in his current position until May 14.
CEO Marco Sala commented: “I would like to thank Walter for his accomplishments over the course of more than 10 years of senior leadership at IGT. His efforts have made meaningful contributions to the strength of our global leadership.
“At every stage of his time with IGT, Walter successfully engaged teams across multiple regions, built significant customer relationships, fostered continued talent development and championed innovation throughout his organization. On behalf of everyone at IGT, I wish Walter well in his future endeavours.”
Following Bugno’s departure, IGT new business responsibilities will be divided among the Global Lottery and Global Gaming business units. Responsibilities for strategic initiatives will be assumed by the IGT Strategy and Corporate Development support function.
Last month, IGT also announced that Beatrice H Bassey is set to leave its Board of Directors later this year after notifying the company of her intention not to stand for re-election as a board member.
