Scientific Games has announced the appointment of highly-accomplished senior financial management executive Nick Negro as its new Chief Financial Officer.
Following an extensive nationwide search, Negro was appointed to the role upon the recent retirement of former CFO James Bunitsky who joined Scientific Games in 1981 and helped lead the company through a succession of business and financial transformations across four decades, including the sale of Scientific Games Lottery to Brookfield Business Partners in April 2022.
Negro is a results-driven finance professional with 20 years of progressive financial, strategic, operational management, and leadership experience for global multi-billion-dollar organizations in the technology, logistics, and manufacturing sectors. He has proven success developing and executing financial strategies at international companies, including CFO positions at Honeywell, Dover Corporation, and Navistar.
“We are grateful for Jim Bunitsky’s outstanding financial leadership and excited to now add Nick to our Executive Leadership Team in the role of CFO. He has a thorough understanding of the complexity of international operations in a service-based business and broad knowledge of corporate structure, compliance and strategy. Guided by Nick’s financial expertise, we look forward to the next chapter of sound financial management of our global business,” Scientific Games CEO Pat McHugh said.
With corporate governance and compliance vital to earning long-term government-regulated lottery contracts, McHugh said the company would continue its relentless focus on innovating games, products, and services while setting the global lottery industry’s gold standard for achieving and sustaining business growth to maximize profitability and cash flow for Scientific Games’ customers and shareholders.
