Lucy Buckley, a rising executive at Inspired Gaming Group (Inspired), the leading supplier of SBG Video Lottery and Virtual Sports, has today been recognised in Global Gaming Business’s ‘40 under 40’ list.
As an additional accolade, she has been promoted from Marketing Director to a new role as Director of Strategy and Communications at Inspired, in recognition for her contribution to the business over the last four years. In her new role, Lucy Buckley will be working as part of the Executive team to refine and document Inspired’s corporate and divisional strategies, define key milestones, and track progress towards both short-term and long-term business objectives, as the business expands into new markets and product segments. Lucy will continue to oversee Inspired’s marketing and communications functions, but her team will be playing a more active role in day-to-day activities.
Global Gaming Business’s “40 under 40” recognises “Emerging Leaders.” The program identifies young workers and executives in the gaming industry that have made a mark during their early careers. Its objective is to identify rising stars that could succeed the established leaders.
Lucy Buckley, Director of Strategy and Communications at Inspired Gaming Group, said: “I am delighted to receive this type of industry recognition so early into my gaming career. Over the last four years at Inspired, I have worked tirelessly to develop the B2B and B2C marketing functions so that they match and support the quality of the products that Inspired offers. To have my efforts recognised, by both Global Gaming Business, and the Executive Team at Inspired, is a career highlight for me. I look forward to the challenges ahead as I start my new role at Inspired and embark on a part-time MBA at Cass Business School in London. I also look forward to playing a more active role within the global gaming industry.”
Luke Alvarez, Founder and CEO at Inspired Gaming Group, added: “Lucy has been an absolute asset to Inspired. I would like to congratulate her being recognised as emerging leader in “40 under 40” and for her well deserved promotion.”
