Mark Lipparelli brings a vast experience of management positions in gaming and regulation organizations.
The American National Center for Responsible Gaming (NCRG) has elected a new member, Mark Lipparelli, who will join the organization's board of directors. Lipparelli arrives at the board with wide experience and knowledge in the field as he has just recently finished serving as the Nevada Gaming Control Board chairman, a position which he has held for four years.
Commenting on the new member, Alan Feldman the chairman of NCRG said in a statement: "We are thrilled to welcome Mark to the board; his deep knowledge and work in the regulatory space within the gaming industry is unparalleled". Feldman went on and said that Liparelli's expertise will surely help educate regulators about gambling disorders and the NCRG itself to strategically address responsible gaming programs for online gamblers.
Before his position as the Nevada regulator, Lipparelli has held a wide range of management positions in the gaming industry, including in companies like Bally Technologies and Casino Data Systems. The NCRG also welcomed a new secretary and treasurer, Christine Reilly, who has stepped in for Judy Patterson who served in the position since the NCRG's creation in 1996.
The NCRG is America's only national organization which is fully devoted to the funding of research to help battle gambling disorders both in adults and in youth. It was founded in 1996 as a charitable organization; it is the American Gaming Association's (AGA) affiliated charity. The NCRG board of directors includes top representatives from the gaming, public health and the regulatory communities.
