American gaming machine innovator, Scientific Games Corporation has further strengthened the leadership team behind its fledgling SG Digital subsidiary by hiring Alexander Ambrose to serve as the entity’s new Chief Financial Officer.

Experience counts:

According to a brief Wednesday press release published by European Gaming Media and Events, the Las Vegas-headquartered firm detailed that Ambrose has a wealth of industry and leadership expertise thanks to periods serving in comparable roles for omni-channel gaming software and services innovator, Playtech, and the innovator’s own Ash Gaming Limited games development enterprise.

Budding iGaming concern:

Scientific Games Corporation established SG Digital in February by combining the assets of recently-purchased NYX Gaming Group Limited with those of its own SG Interactive subsidiary. Under the guidance of experienced industry executive, Matt Davey, the London-based concern serves as a global business-to-business provider of digital lottery, gaming and sportsbetting technology and content with its 1,500-strong workforce spread across some 34 offices.

Increasing presence:

Michael Quartieri, Executive Vice-President and Chief Financial Officer for Scientific Games Corp, declared that he is ‘thrilled’ to welcome Ambrose to SG Digital before explaining that the new recruit is set to be decisive in helping the entity to grow its presence across the iGaming and sportsbetting sectors.
