Board Members Meeting

We build trust & accountability.
Every day.

We believe rules & policies promote stronger growth.

Our company’s commitment to corporate governance is integral to our business and reflects not only regulatory requirements, NASDAQ rules and broadly recognized governance practices, but also effective leadership and oversight by our senior management team and board of directors.

Always thinking differently about how we can grow as a company, our board of directors shares our vision of driving the gaming and entertainment industry forward in creative and innovative ways — all while promoting long-term value creation, transparency and accountability to our shareholders.

Our board of directors

Our board of directors is made up of professionals from many disciplines — including investment banking, asset management, tax accounting and consulting, advertising, gaming/entertainment and more — and their level of expertise is unparalleled. We were named as Champions of Board Diversity by The Forum of Executive Women in 2021, 2022 & 2023 and the 2021 and 2023 Breakfast of Corporate Champions, which recognizes companies that lead the way for gender balance on corporate boards.
