Affinity Gaming has named Mary Elizabeth Higgins as its new chief financial officer with immediate effect.
Higgins has been serving as the company’s interim CFO and Chief Operating Officer since June 2018.
Before joining Affinity, Higgins was instrumental in establishing VICI Properties, a REIT spinoff from Caesars Entertainment Operating Company, Inc. (CEOC), and served as its CFO.
“Mary Beth is one of the top financial executives in the gaming sector, and we are pleased to welcome her to the Affinity team full time,” James Zenni, Chairman of Affinity’s Board of Directors and Chief Executive Officer of Z Capital Partners, said. “With her prior experience, including 10 years at Affinity’s predecessor Herbst Gaming, she is uniquely qualified for this position, and I’m confident that she’s the right person to drive continued financial growth and value creation at Affinity as the gaming landscape continues to evolve.”
