Global gaming company Aristocrat Leisure Limited announced Friday it has received “notable industry recognition” at the annual G2E Las Vegas. Aristocrat’s CEO was awarded an ESG Award for Excellence in Sustainable Gaming; while the company was separately named Land-Based Industry Supplier of the Year at the annual Global Gaming Awards, celebrated within the framework of the expo.
Aristocrat CEO and Managing Director Trevor Croker was presented with the newly established ESG Award for Excellence in Sustainable Gaming by Bill Miller, President and CEO of the American Gaming Association. Miller described Croker as “the definition of a servant leader,” and noted he has made ESG commitment central to Aristocrat’s global operations.
“As Chairman of the AGA, he’s pushed the industry to do the same. Trevor played an integral role in defining core ESG priorities for gaming and partnered with the AGA to conceptualize and publish the first-ever ESG in Gaming report. This foundational effort initiated by Trevor will drive our industry’s ESG commitments for years to come,” Miller added.
Concurrently at the annual Global Gaming Awards, Aristocrat Gaming won the recognition of Land-Based Industry Supplier of the Year for the fourth consecutive year. The company also won Slot of the Year for the fifth year in a row, with the Wild Wild Buffalo slot game as this year’s “top hit.”
Hector Fernandez, CEO of Aristocrat Gaming, said: “We are thrilled to be recognized by industry peers for our investment in innovation, accelerating our ability to deliver the best products for our customers and partners. This success would not be possible without our valued employees, notably our design and development teams, who are the brilliant fuel behind our dynamic game portfolio.”
The awards event was held in conjunction with the Global Gaming Expo (G2E) and honors the gaming industry’s outstanding performers from the previous 12 months. The latest edition of G2E came to an end last Thursday as the major industry event returned to Las Vegas for a week of fully in-person education and networking action, gathering nearly 25,000 visitors at The Venetian Expo.
