Trevor Croker, Aristocrat Leisure’s CEO and managing director, has been elected president of the American Gaming Association, succeeding outgoing AGA Chairman Tim Wilmott, Penn National Gaming Chairman and Chief Executive Officer since 2018.
Since becoming Aristocrat Chief Executive in 2017, Croker has served on the board of the company and a number of executive committees.
“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.”
