British Columbia Lottery Corporation (BCLC), the state-owned Canadian lottery and casino operator, has announced the permanent appointment of Mark Goldberg as the company’s Chief Information Officer and VicePresident of Business Technology.
The new Chief Information Officer will have to lead the corporation’s technology strategy in order to support the company’s operations in three key segments: lottery, casino and sports betting.
Mark Goldberg comes with an experience of over 20 years in various information technology roles, including a recent stint as vice-president of information technology at Hootsuite, the social media management platform.
Before this, the new BCLC Chief Information Office was in charge of developing digital transformation strategies for various companies in several economic sectors such as hospitality, travel, consumer product and heavy equipment.
The appointment of Mark Goldberg comes five months after the British Columbia Lottery Corporation promoted Pat Davis, the former Chief Information Officer, to the position of Chief Executive Officer and President following the departure of Lynda Cavanaugh, who had served as interim CEO and President.
