The American Gaming Association (AGA) has announced the 2022 Gaming Hall of Fame Class, which includes Gavin Isaacs, Virginia McDowell, and Michael Rumbolz, all of whom have made significant contributions to the industry.
Isaacs is the former President and CEO of Scientific Games Corporation and the current Chairman of Games Global; McDowell is the former President and CEO of Isle of Capri Casinos, the current Non-Executive Director of Entain, and the Co-Founder of Global Gaming Women; and Rumbolz is the former CEO of Everi Holdings and the company’s current Executive Chairman.
All three will be honored at an invitation-only induction ceremony this October at the Global Gaming Expo (G2E) in Las Vegas.
“Gavin, Virginia, and Mike have all made significant contributions to the gaming industry,” said AGA President and CEO Bill Miller. “From leading casino and manufacturing operations across the country to serving on a variety of boards and advisory committees, their influence has spanned the US and global gaming industries – and we are all better off as a result.”
An independent panel of gaming executives selects Hall of Fame honorees, with this year’s selection committee members including Kirsten Clark, Executive Director of the International Association of Gaming Advisors, Jeffrey Compton, Business Manager of CDC Gaming Reports, and Steve Sutherland, President and CEO of Konami Gaming, among many others.
“The Gaming Hall of Fame is comprised of individuals who have pushed the industry forward through innovation, leadership, and excellence,” said AGA Chairman of the Board, Hard Rock International Chairman, and Seminole Gaming CEO Jim Allen. This year’s inductees are deserving additions to the organization.
“At G2E 2022, I hope to celebrate their contributions alongside the entire gaming industry.”
