Scientific Games Corporation has announced an enhancement of its operations, with the organisation welcoming Alexander Ambrose as new chief financial officer of its SG Digital division.

As CFO of its mostly recent introduced branch, Ambrose is to be immediately charged with further propelling SG Digital’s growth across both the igaming and sports betting sectors.

Jason Walbridge, chief operating officer of SG Digital, commented: “Alex is the perfect addition to our team as we level up our product portfolio, and continue the rapid transformation of our sportsbook business, to meet the needs of our growing US customer base.

“As a finance leader with strong industry expertise, Alex has extensive experience leading finance teams in a multi-product environment. We’re glad to have him on board during this transformational time.”

Ambrose is to bring a wealth of industry and leadership expertise into the role, garnered from his time as finance director of Ash Gaming, and more recently as UK finance director of Playtech Plc.

Michael Quartieri, executive vice president and chief financial officer of Scientific Games, whom Ambrose is to report to at the firm’s London base, added: “We are thrilled to have Alex join SG Digital and our global finance team.  

“His in-depth financial experience in igaming will enable him to drive operational excellence, execute best practices and position us for growth in our igaming and sportsbook businesses.”

Just last month global gaming, hospitality and entertainment giant Hard Rock International deepened its agreement alongside Scientific Games, with a new three year contract related to the provision of a series of lottery instant games.

Lauding the deal, the company, which states that it supplies “the largest portfolio of licensed brands for lottery game entertainment,” believes the latest deal with Hard Rock solidifies its provisions for lotteries in Europe and North America.

Furthermore, SBC Americas recently delved a little deeper into Scientific Games and it’s recent sportsbook launches with Caesars Entertainment, in a ‘behind the scenes’ feature which can be found HERE.
