Matt Davey to exit SG Digital CEO role in management shake-up

By Matthew Enderby

Matt Davey is to leave the position of SG Digital CEO as part of a series of management changes at Scientific Games.

The supplier will move Jordan Levin into the role of SG Digital CEO at the end of 2018; Levin was previously President of SG Interactive and is currently Senior Vice President for Corporate Development

Davey was CEO of NYX Gaming Group, which was sold to Scientific Games in January for approximately $631m.

Meanwhile, in the SG Lottery division, Group Chief Executive Jim Kennedy will take up the role of Chairman, being replaced by Patrick McHugh, who will be Executive Vice President and Group Chief Executive.

McHugh will be responsible for the global lottery business and will work with Kennedy to service existing relationships and grow the lottery business in the US and around the world.

Scientific Games CEO Barry Cottle said: "These globally-respected leaders and longtime members of our SG family are the best people to continue our growth trajectory, deliver operational excellence and inspire our employees. Pat will leverage his in-depth Lottery experience and proven success at Scientific Games to provide strong operational leadership and innovation. He will work with Jim to continue to execute our global growth strategies. For SG Digital, Jordan's digital experience will prove immensely valuable, as he formally takes over our rapidly accelerating digital gaming and sports betting businesses."
