LAS VEGAS, NV--(Marketwire - Mar 28, 2013) - Aristocrat's Vice President of System Sales and Marketing Kelly Shaw has been named a "Proven Leader" in Casino Enterprise Management magazine's 8th annual Great Women of Gaming Awards.
A passionate and proven executive, Shaw's commitment to the gaming industry has ushered in a new era where business intelligence drives better business decisions across the entire operation; where online gaming is becoming a reality through play-for-fun sites that are pre-programmed to be play-for-pay sites; and where vision and leadership extend beyond the workplace and into the community.
At Aristocrat, Shaw has led her team to two successive record-breaking revenue years for the company's award-winning Oasis 360™ system business unit in 2011 and 2012.
Shaw is committed to continuing education, at work and in her personal life. She created a mentoring program for her team at Aristocrat, which has helped to retain valuable sales staff and develop individuals into a team of successful leaders. In her private life, she established and funds a scholarship at the Business Department at Eastern University, supporting women pursuing a degree in a business-related field. In addition to financial support, she also volunteers her time at Eastern University, helping faculty to plan strategies and mentoring students.
"For many in the gaming industry, the name Kelly Shaw is synonymous with casino management systems," said Aristocrat COO Seamus McGill. "Throughout her career and various management positions within our organization, Kelly has always been seen as a strong and respected leader. In addition to her daily responsibilities, she has acted as a mentor for young executives, and she drives several leadership groups within our company, including succession planning workshops for female executives, mentoring programs and advanced leadership programs. We are delighted for Kelly to have received this prestigious recognition."
