Garland brings 25 years of experience, working for US giants such as General Electric and Brambles, where she will now oversee over 3,000 employees.

Pat McHugh, CEO of Scientific Games, said: “Our people are our greatest asset in serving our customers. Mona is a dynamic leader with a passion for coaching and developing talent to evolve organisations.

"We look forward to the tremendous impact she and our Human Resources team will have on our current employees, as well as expanding and further diversifying our workforce for the continued growth of our global business.”

Most recently, Garland served as Chief Inclusion and Diversity Officer at a global building materials business, where she worked with the Executive Team.
