James has served as CFO of the company’s Gaming business since January 2020, with her new roles effective 15 October 2021. On that date, current CFO Mike Eklund will step down from his role to pursue other opportunities.

“Since joining Scientific Games, Connie has helped lead the Gaming business through the unprecedented disruptions caused by Covid-19 and played a critical role in our strategic review and developing our vision to become the leading cross-platform global game company,” said Scientific Games President and CEO Barry Cottle. 

“As we advance our strategy to become a content-led growth company, we are confident that Connie is the right executive to take the reins to help us achieve our vision and drive long-term shareholder value.”

James has almost 20 years’ gaming experience in financial and operational roles. Prior to joining Scientific Games, she served as Corporate VP Finance - Business Operations and Supply Chain at Cargill. Other former roles include CFO of Global Land Based Gaming and CFO of Americas and Business Operations at Aristocrat, and Manager of Risk Services with Deloitte Australia.

James commented: “Scientific Games is a company with enormous potential as we execute on our strategy to de-lever our balance sheet, invest in growth for the future and unlock value for our stakeholders. I am excited to work closely with Barry and the rest of our team as we capitalize on high growth opportunities available to us over the coming years.”

Eklund added: “I am incredibly proud of our team and what we have accomplished. With the progress we have made and the company's transformation taking hold, I know that our finance team is in capable hands with Connie at the helm and that Scientific Games is set for an exciting future.”
