Scientific Games hires Jamie Odell as senior advisor

Scientific Games Corporation has strengthened its leadership team after appointing former Aristocrat Leisure CEO Jamie Odell as the group’s new special advisor to the chairman and CEO.

Odell joins the company after an 8 year tenure at Aristocrat, where he oversaw the company’s market capitalisation, growing Aristocrat from a $1.3bn company up to a company valued at approximately $7.5bn.

As part of his new role at Scientific Games, Odell will be tasked with serving as the advisor to Scientific Games Board chairman and MacAndrews and Forbes chairman and CEO Ronald O Perelman on gaming industry trends and market innovations.

“I have known and watched Jamie’s success for years and I am so glad he has agreed to join us in this new role,” said Perelman.

“Scientific Games has done an incredible job building products and services that our customers and players love. The addition of Jamie will significantly enhance our ability to reach new players and markets as well as drive growth across the company.”

Prior to his work with Aristocrat, Odell held a number of senior executive positions across the global beverage industry.
