International Gaming Technology (IGT) has congratulated its Senior Vice President of Global Brand, Marketing and Communications, Wendy Montgomery, after it was announced she will be inducted into the Lottery Industry Hall of Fame.
Montgomery, who leads the firm’s Global Gaming, Global Lottery and Digital & Betting marketing teams, will be inducted at an event hosted by the Public Gaming Research Institute in Nashville on October 27.
Her role at IGT oversees the company’s corporate brand strategy and creative services, helping to create new opportunities for ‘significant new channel sales development within lottery.’
“Wendy Montgomery is a seasoned lottery executive who uses her expertise to advocate for solutions that drive our customers’ growth,” said CEO Marco Sala.
“She has driven IGT’s leadership as a strong advocate for diversity and inclusion and corporate social responsibility. Her colleagues at IGT applaud her induction into the Lottery Industry Hall of Fame.”
A graduate of the Queen’s University in Kingston, Montgomery joined the company in 2018 as Senior Vice President of Global Lottery Marketing but since then her role has evolved to cover more issues in the industry. She also serves as the Chairperson of IGT’s Executive Sustainability Committee and the Diversity and Inclusion Executive Council and also serves as Co-Executive Chair of IGT’s Women’s Inclusion Network.
Montgomery added: “I am incredibly honored to be inducted into the Lottery Industry Hall of Fame among so many of my talented peers.
“Having worked on both the operator and supplier side, I have had the great pleasure of collaborating with lottery colleagues across the globe to achieve the common goal of modernizing products and solutions that meet the demands of our ever-evolving lottery industry and its players.”
