The company revealed it appointed Debra Nutton to its Board of Directors. Although the announcement was made this week, Everi explained that the appointment will be effective as of April 1, 2023.
Joining the company’s Board, Nutton brings decades of experience.

Michael Rumbolz, the executive chairman of Everi’s Board, welcomed Nutton to the company’s growing team. He outlined that she has a track record and is a proven leader, which makes her an invaluable addition to the Board.
Rumbolz pointed out that Nutton is expected to bring strategic counsel which is ultimately going to help the company improve its products. This, in turn, will likely boost Everi’s profits and global footprint. “Debra joins us at an opportune time to assist with the expansive growth opportunities that we expect will take Everi to even greater prominence in coming years,” said Rumbolz in conclusion.
“We are delighted to welcome Debra to Everi and believe her distinguished record of gaming achievements and leadership make her an exceptional addition to the Company’s Board of Directors.“
