Intralot unveils new board for US subsidiary

14 June 2019

Greek lotteries and gaming solutions provider Intralot has appointed a new board of directors for its US-facing Intralot Inc subsidiary.

Thomas Miller, a former American diplomat and three-time US Ambassador, will serve as non-executive chairman and independent director for Intralot Inc.

Miller spent time as US Ambassador to Greece and Bosnia-Herzegovina, as well as serving as a negotiator in Cyprus. He has also served as chief executive of Plan International, a UK-based non-governmental organisation working to help children in developing countries.

Daniel Rappaport will take on the role of non-executive vice chairman and act as an independent director, having previously served as chairman of the board and CEO of the New York Mercantile Exchange.

Nicholas Mitropoulos, a political and business consultant, has also been named as an independent director. He previously served as executive director of the Taubman Center for State and Local Government at the Harvard Kennedy School.

“I am very pleased to welcome three very senior independent directors at the board of Intralot Inc. joining a very experienced team, in support of our efforts to strengthen corporate governance as a driver for growth and customer satisfaction,” Intralot group chairman and CEO Sokratis Kokkalis said.

Byron Boothe, interim CEO of Intralot Inc, and Nikolaos Nikolakopoulos, Intralot Group's deputy CEO, will also serve on the board as directors.

The appointments come after Intralot this week extended its agreement to provide management and operation services to La Marocaine Des Jeux et des Sports, Morocco's state-owned sports lottery body.
