Christine Wechsler has joined Scientific Games in the role of SVP of Public Policy and Government Affairs.   

She joins a team of government affairs, public policy and advocacy professionals to support Scientific Games' global business growth. Scientific Games' goal is to become the partner of choice for many government-regulated lotteries, which will be a large part of Wechsler's role. 

Scientific Games has already made expansions this year, with changes to its digital and sports betting team. As part of those changes, Kira Summers was promoted to VP of Operations and Planning for Digital, while Merv Huber has also been promoted to VP of Digital Growth. 

Before joining Scientific Games, Wechsler was a partner with Schnader Harrison Segal & Lewis LLP; she also served as Executive Deputy General Counsel to the Governor in the Pennsylvania Governor's Office of General Counsel.

Before that role, Wechsler spent a decade as an Assistant District Attorney for the Philadelphia District Attorney's Office. 

Jim Schultz, EVP, Global Public Policy and Government Affairs, said, "Scientific Games is dedicated to building and maintaining positive relationships with every governing body we serve.

"Christine's understanding of public policy from both the government and business perspectives will help maintain our industry-leading reputation. She brings legislative and advocacy expertise to the team that will help foster further growth in the iLottery space across the country."
