Gaming manufacturer IGT has appointed former NRL coach and Aristocrat manager Kelly Egan as its Queensland State Sales Manager. In an almost straight swap, Egan replaces former IGT Queensland & NT State Manager Craig Harley who was appointed Clubs Queensland CEO in June.
Egan had held the CEO role at Clubs Queensland since 2020. He will now have responsibility for the gaming manufacturer’s club and hotel sales strategy in Queensland.
Egan was previously a key account manager in Queensland with Aristocrat and, in addition, has an administration, development and coaching background with time at the Raiders, North Queensland Cowboys, Manly and the Bulldogs.
“Kelly’s extensive industry experience gained via senior management roles within our industry, hold him in great stead to take on this senior role within the IGT ANZ sales team,” IGT Senior Sales Director, Brad Robertson, said.
“Kelly is well-known within (the) Queensland club, hotel and casino industry and understands what our customers are looking for not only in terms of optimising their gaming floors but also in terms of their overall business.
“We are proud to welcome Kelly to the IGT team to partner with our customers and continue to reinforce and build on our solid relationships in Queensland for mutual business growth in the future.”
Egan also received a Special Service to Industry Award at this year’s Clubs Queensland gala awards held in March.
