The firm said it had already begun its search for Schweinfurthâs replacement, and had retained executive search firm Egon Zehnder to assess both internal and external candidates.
Scientific Games said Schweinfurth would continue his role until its year-end audit and a replacement has been found, and would work closely with management to ensure a smooth transition.
Scientific Games CEO Gavin Isaacs said he would like to thank Schweinfurth for his leadership and âsignificant contributionsâ to the company during his tenure.
Schweinfurth said it had been a privilege to work with the Scientific Games team, but he was looking forward to his retirement and spending more time with friends and family.
âI’ve thoroughly enjoyed my 20+ years in the gaming industry at Scientific Games, WMS and Bally, but now it’s time for me to retire,â he said.
âWith the talented and experienced team we’ve built as we integrated our companies, I am confident that it is the right time to transition the company’s financial leadership,â Schweinfurth added.
The firm also announced that Michael Quartieri had joined as corporate controller after a nine year stint at Las Vegas Sands Corp as chief accounting officer.
