Patti Hart – International Game Technology (IGT)
Men are wonderful at playing games, but business is serious stuff. Patti Hart took over the helm for International Game Technology (IGT) earlier in the year. The casino gaming company hit hard times in 2008 due to the recession and financial crisis.
It turns out the gambling business is not recession-proof. My guess is that a female in the executive suite might have had a better feel for where the overall market was heading.
Shares have more than doubled since Ms. Hart took over. Could there be more gains ahead with her at the helm? Perhaps.
