Light & Wonder hires Niaz Nejad as MD of Gaming Americas
Niaz Nejad is going to be Light & Wonder’s latest Managing Director of Gaming in the North and South American regions.
Having over two and a half decades of previous experiences in upper-management roles in various prominent firms and even government organizations, the new appointee was an excellent candidate to manage Light & Wonder’s Gaming operations in the two American continents.
In her most recent position, Nejad was the Head of Marketing and the Senior VP of Aristocrat Gaming in the North American region. Before that, the new appointee worked at the gambling regulator of the Canadian province of Alberta, where she held three prominent positions over the course of almost a decade.
“Having had the opportunity to work with Niaz in the past, I am excited to have her on board. We are certain that her immense wealth of knowledge and skills, combined with her leadership experience, make her a perfect fit for the role of our MD of Gaming in the two American continents. We are looking forward to expanding our company across the region together in the near future.”
remarked the Chief Executive Officer of Gaming at Light & Wonder, Siobhan Lane.
