Bill Miller has been named President and Chief Executive Officer of the American Gaming Association (AGA) effective January 14, 2019.
The appointment follows a comprehensive search and selection process, the Board said, undertaken by a seven-member committee which was formed in June and led by Tim Wilmott, CEO of Penn National Gaming and Chairman of the AGA Board of Directors.
During his tenure as senior vice president at the Business Roundtable (BRT), Miller helped grow the organization’s brand and advocacy footprint in Washington, leading the association’s outreach to Capitol Hill and the Administration.
“Bill’s extensive work with federal policymakers and as a seasoned leader of membership and industry advocacy organizations was critical to our decision,” said Wilmott. “He joins a successful organization at a time when our industry is enjoying great momentum, thanks in part to a major policy achievement – the ending of the federal sports betting prohibition. On behalf of the AGA Board, I am excited to welcome Bill to the team.
“The Board is extremely thankful for the leadership of Stacy Papadopoulos and Sara Slane, and the commitment of the entire AGA team during this period of transition,” Wilmott concluded.
