Scientific Games’ Regional VP of Sales Jeremy Kyzer has been honoured for his services to the lottery industry with a Powers Award from the North American State and Provincial Lotteries Association (NASPL).
The award is given to those who have demonstrated the ‘highest achievement, drive and integrity’ and made ‘outstanding contributions’ to lottery organisations and the industry as a whole.
Named in honour of the late Edward J. Powers, the ‘Father of US lotteries’, a Powers award is widely regarded as one of the highest honours in the trade.
Kyzer has racked up a decade of experience working with US lotteries at Scientific Games and his role, according to the global lottery company, focuses on instant game management including analytics, design, production, advanced logistics, retail optimisation and digital engagement.
He was nominated by the South Carolina Education Lottery, whose instant games have all been designed and manufactured by Scientific Games since the lottery’s launch in 2002.
“Our people are our greatest asset, and our teams are committed to providing exceptional service to our customers,” said Pat McHugh, CEO for Scientific Games.
“I can’t think of a better acknowledgment than recognition by one of our customers.
“We congratulate Jeremy for this prestigious award and thank the South Carolina Education Lottery for recognising his efforts.”
Kyzer’s award follows Scientific Games’ hat-trick of honours at the 2022 Communitas Awards in June.
The firm won three awards in recognition of its ‘excellence’ in its corporate social responsibility duties.
