Trevor Croker, CEO and managing director of Aristocrat Leisure, has been elected chairman of the American Gaming Association.
Croker succeeds outgoing AGA chairman Tim Wilmott, president and chief executive of Penn National Gaming, who has led the board since 2018.
Croker (pictured) has served on the association’s board and a number of executive committees since he became Aristocrat chief executive in 2017.
“It’s a great privilege to lead the AGA during a time of great growth and change in the gaming industry,” said Croker.
“I look forward to continuing the progress made under Tim’s leadership to modernise the industry and make responsible gaming a signature priority.”
“I’m thrilled to have such a well-regarded leader in the industry step into the role of AGA’s next chairman,” said Bill Miller, president and CEO of the AGA. “Trevor brings with him invaluable insight from our supplier members and fresh perspectives on how to propel the industry into the next generation of gaming.
“Tim led the AGA during a dynamic period for the industry and provided a steady hand throughout the association’s own evolution. The entire gaming industry benefited from his leadership, and I’m personally grateful for his continued and wise counsel.”
“It’s been an honour to serve the gaming industry as chairman of AGA the past two years,” said outgoing chair Wilmott.
“I’m proud of the strides we’ve made to highlight gaming’s role as an economic engine and mainstream form of entertainment. The future of the organisation and industry is bright with Trevor and Bill’s leadership.”
