"Bruce's proven leadership capability, extensive experience and strategic thinking make him a great addition to RSI."

Caughill has over two decades of experience in Canada's commercial gaming industry.  Prior to the AGCO, he was CEO / president of Caughill Management Consulting, providing strategic counsel and regulatory advice to international gaming companies. Before that, he served for more than twenty years as vice president/ general counsel, corporate secretary and chief compliance officer at Falls Management Company, operator of the Niagara Casinos.

"I am excited to bring my years of experience in Canadian gaming to support RSI's pursuit of opportunities in Canada," said Caughill, a native of Ontario. "I am particularly excited at the prospect of supporting the many local Canadian employees as the company establishes its Innovation Hub here."
