GLI CEO James Maida said, “We are grateful to our peers throughout the world who recognized GLI and who recognized Christie with these tremendous honors. The pandemic has been difficult for all of us in the gaming, lottery, and hospitality industries, and together we reinvented our businesses overnight.
