Scientific Games Corporation has continued its senior management overhaul with the announcement of Doug Albregts as its new EVP and Group CEO of the Gaming Division, taking over from Derik Mooberry.

Albregts joins Scientific Games from Sharp Electronics Corporation of America, where he was President and CEO of Sharp Imaging and Information Company of America as well as President, CEO and Chairman of Sharp Electronics America.

His arrival comes just two weeks after the company announced that current SG Interactive boss Barry Cottle will replace Kevin Sheehan as President and CEO from 1 June 2018. It also announced Tim Bucher, previously SVP and GM of the Consumer Solutions Group at Seagate Technology, as its new EVP and Chief Product Officer across all Scientific Games business divisions.

As Group CEO of the Gaming Division, Albregts will oversee Scientific Games’ product development, production, supply chain and sales of the company’s gaming products, systems and services. Mooberry will stay with Scientific Games as EVP for Strategic Projects.

“Given Scientific Games’ diverse range of industry leading products and services, we are very excited that we will be bringing Doug’s deep experience managing a wide range of high-tech businesses and driving innovation across product lines to lead the gaming division,” said Cottle.

“Doug’s proven success at top-notch global technology companies will help us lead the industry in innovation and enable us to execute our growth strategies. I also want to acknowledge Derik Mooberry for his service and leadership at our company and within our industry. We’re looking forward to continuing to work with him.”

Albregts said, “I am excited to join Scientific Games as Barry Cottle becomes the new CEO and all of SG is poised to continue to lead the industry.

“My passion for driving innovation, promoting operational excellence and executive leadership skills, and developing cutting-edge commercial technology will enable me to hit the ground running, executing our growth strategies and continuing our momentum as a company.”
