As part of this new role, Friedman will bring a Chief Financial Officers panel to the jam-packed ECGC agenda. The panel will focus on financial, accounting and regulatory matters in the gaming industry.

"We are thrilled that Friedman LLP has joined forces with Cooper Levenson, Spectrum Gaming Group and Friedmutter Architectural Group. The perspective and expertise of a CPA firm allows us to present in depth, for the first time, the views of CFOs. We believe this is especially critical this year, as the gaming industry faces new and complex issues," said Lloyd D. Levenson, CEO of Cooper Levenson, Attorneys at Law.

The Chief Financial Officers panel will be held on the morning of May 25. Panelists will include:

  • Glenn Josephs, CPA and Partner, Friedman, LLP

Matt Blank, Business Development Manager, Friedman LLP, will provide introductions and set the stage for property-level and corporate CFOs to discuss the implications and challenges of new and proposed financial and regulatory matters -- and how they could impact both operations and capital investment.

ECGC will offer attendees its most ambitious agenda ever, with panel topics ranging from the Casino Floor of Tomorrow, to gaming's future in New Jersey and the Mid-Atlantic region, to the future of i-gaming and regulation. Highlights of the event will include keynote addresses from industry-leading CEOs.
