According to a statement released by the organization on Monday, Mark Pace has been elected President of the International Gaming Standards Association (IGSA), succeeding Peter DeRaedt, who departed in January.
Pace has over 35 years of experience in the gaming business and has been actively involved with both the IGSA and its predecessor, the Gaming Standards Association (GSA), for over 20 years.
He has served in several capacities for the organization over this time, including vice-chairman of the board, treasurer, head of a committee, and board member. Pace has previously held positions as vice president of IGSA and managing director of GSA Europe. He will still hold the position of managing director of GSA Europe in addition to his new responsibilities as president of the IGSA.
“I am deeply honored to take over from our long-time president Peter DeRaedt, who has graciously agreed to remain a part of the association, providing advice whenever needed,” Pace said, thanking the association for the opportunity.
In addition, the statement revealed Martin Pedak’s nomination as vice chairman and Nimish Purohit as head of the IGSA board of directors for 2024. Director of technological compliance at Playtech Pedak will be vice-chair, while Purohit, vice president of product resilience at Aristocrat Gaming, will chair.
Syed Hussain, the chief technical officer of the Oregon Lottery, Paul Burns, the former CEO of the Atlantic Lottery Corp., who will serve as treasurer, and Keshav Pitani, vice president for research and development at Light & Wonder Inc., are among the newly elected board members.
