Corporate social responsibility specialist Conscious Gaming has appointed gaming industry veteran Blair Aronson (formerly Albanese) as its new Operations Director. She joins the firm from SG Digital where she spent the past three years as Director, Customer Success – Americas.

An independent non-profit established by the founders of GeoComply, Conscious Gaming utilizes advanced technology to propel social responsibility initiatives. It works with gaming operators, regulators, sports leagues, suppliers, responsible gaming advocacy groups, academics and treatment professionals to better protect consumers and enhance responsible gaming and sport integrity programs.  

Prior to her work with SG Digital, Aronson spent five years with the NYX Gaming Group as the Director of Operations. NYX Gaming was acquired by Scientific Games in 2018. She becomes Conscious Gaming’s second full-time employee and will be responsible for the management, scaling and optimization of PlayPause, working with gaming operators, state regulators, sports leagues and platform providers. 

She will also serve in a Chief of Staff capacity within the service delivery and operations teams, helping with continual improvements on the structure and process of customer-facing teams as the company grows.

Conscious Gaming Trustee Anna Sainsbury stated: “As we continue to make progress with PlayPause, it was important to add someone with Blair’s skillset to ensure proper implementation of the technology for our clients. She has a wealth of experience, knowledge and relationships that as we continue to grow, will help us deliver on our promise to protect consumers.”

Aronson responded: “I am thrilled Anna has offered me the opportunity to work alongside her in an organization with such an important mission. The online gaming business is growing rapidly and the need to modernize and strengthen responsible gaming will be critical to its success. I look forward to continuing the relationships I have built throughout my career to help roll out the PlayPause technology.”
