ELG 40 Under 40 announced

8 October 2018

(PRESS RELEASE) -- Emerging Leaders of Gaming (ELG) and Global Gaming Business magazine (GGB) today announced the 2018-19 class of the “ELG 40 Under 40,” which recognizes gaming industry professionals under the age of 40 already making significant impacts on the casino industry. Produced in conjunction with The Innovation Group (TIG), founders of the ELG program, the “ELG 40 Under 40” represents a slice of today's next generation of leaders and seeks to offer these young professionals an extra advantage in the already competitive gaming, entertainment, leisure and hospitality industries.

“The ELG program has become the most important vehicle for recognition of young leaders in the gaming industry,” said Roger Gros, publisher of GGB magazine. “With nominations up nearly 50% year-over-year, the list was difficult to narrow. It’s a testament to the bright future of the industry how competitive the process has become.”

Michael Soll, president of The Innovation Group, said reaction to the program has been incredible. “Awareness of the Emerging Leaders program, now in its seventh year, continues to grow. We’re able to recognize an increasingly more diverse class of rising executives each year,” said Soll. “The Innovation Group firmly believes that new leadership can serve to invigorate an industry, and we hope this program continues to play a key role in identifying individuals with the talent and creativity to lead gaming into the future.”
