Alex Costello will take on the role of vice-president for government relations, while David Forman was promoted to vice-president of research.

Gabrielle Voorhees will move into the position of vice-president for finance and operations, and Brandon Leggiero to senior director for member and partner relations.

Costello will direct the AGA’s federal advocacy efforts, including advancing core priorities on Capitol Hill, as well as overseeing both the payments modernisation and anti-human trafficking working groups.

Forman will lead the AGA’s proprietary research programme, having already played a role in establishing products such as the Commercial Gaming Revenue Tracker and AGA Gaming Industry Outlook.

Voorhees will oversee the AGA’s financial operations and human resources, including the organisation’s financial strength and compliance with financial and organisational policies. 

In addition, Leggiero will assume responsibility for member and partner relations and development. 

“I’m immensely proud of the team we have built at the AGA. Today’s announcement reflects their hard work and significant achievements on behalf of our members and the gaming industry,” AGA president and chief executive Bill Miller said. 

“These talented professionals, and the rest of our strong AGA team, will help us continue to lead the industry through this new era of growth.”

Meanwhile, the AGA also announced a series of new appointments to government relations, communications and member services roles.

These included Tres York joining as senior director of government relations to lead state advocacy and regulatory engagement; Christopher Browne as director of media relations to manage AGA’s media efforts and drive industry narrative; and Annabelle Goese as senior manager for member services to support AGA member and partner relations.

“The addition of high-calibre talent like Tres, Christopher and Annabelle enhance our ability to advance gaming’s interests and deliver member value,” Miller said.
