GGB Magazine Announces Its 25 People to Watch for 2023:

For GGB’s 21st annual People to Watch issue, we’ve continued our practice of mixing the high-profile leaders in the industry with those down in the trenches doing the things that make those leaders look good. And these high-profile leaders will tell you that they can’t do anything without the people who put in the time and effort using their imagination and their experience to put together a solid program.

The leaders, especially those who rose up through the ranks, truly believe that without their support staff, things would fall apart quickly. They also realize that those with that imagination and drive will become the future of this industry sooner than they realize.

In this year’s list we’ve got a good selection from all disciplines in gaming, because GGB’s Editorial Advisory Board recognizes that a healthy industry needs to have extraordinary people at every level. Whether it’s regulators, tribal leaders, suppliers—both online and land-based—folks who run the operations, responsible gaming advocates or others, all elements of the industry have to work hand in hand, and by honoring people from all these fields, we can encourage that to continue.

Most encouraging in this year’s list is the diversity of the honorees. Women and minorities are truly breaking through in gaming, and their contributions are not only being recognized, but they have become leaders in their fields.

So congratulations to all the honorees in GGB’s 25 People to Watch. You have achieved so much so far, and we’re anxious to “watch” you achieve much more in 2023 and the years to come!
