Scientific Games has announced a strategic reorganisation of its legal and public policy teams. The lottery supplier aims to streamline operations and improve strategic alignment by consolidating these functions into a new unified department, Global Legal and Public Policy.

Leading the newly formed department is James D Schultz, who assumes the role of EVP, Global Legal and Public Policy. 

Schultz brings experience from various government roles, including General Counsel to the Governor of Pennsylvania and Senior Associate Counsel in the Office of White House Counsel.

Phil Bauer, with 25 years of experience at Scientific Games, has been promoted to General Counsel and Corporate Secretary.

Christine Wechsler, formerly SVP of Public Policy and Government Relations, will expand her role to serve as SVP of Legislation and Litigation, taking on broader legal responsibilities within the company.

The reorganisation follows the announcement of CLO Dena Rosenzweig's retirement, effective 31 March.

Rosenzweig, who joined Scientific Games in 2017, has played a role in strengthening the company's legal function and upholding its commitment to ethical standards.

Pat McHugh, Scientific Games CEO, said: "As part of this succession plan, we have an opportunity to strategically align our operations with Jim's and Phil's combined talents. Jim Schultz's wide-ranging legal expertise and his deep knowledge of state and federal government operations will provide our business teams with additional strategic support as we continue to pursue new opportunities to expand our global operations. The combined organisation under Jim will allow us to support our growth plans more efficiently and strategically."

Schultz added: "Since joining Scientific Games in 2022, I have witnessed the strong work we do for our government partners which in turn enables them to serve their taxpayers and residents to provide meaningful programs across all service sectors. In my new position, our goal will be to maximise our services to the benefit of these constituencies. Phil Bauer is a trusted legal advisor with in-depth industry knowledge and will serve us well as we continue to grow our business." 

In recent developments, Scientific Games announced the launch of a new Players’ Club Rewards program for the South Carolina Education Lottery, offering players enhanced engagement and rewards.

Additionally, the company unveiled SG Studios, a new game studio focusing on iLottery products.
