Philippine Amusement and Gaming Corporation (PAGCOR) Chairman and CEO Alejandro H. Tengco was voted Executive of the Year at the Global Gaming Awards Asia-Pacific 2024, held at the Conrad Hotel in Pasay City, Manila on June 4th.

Runner-up for the award was MGM China President and COO Hubert Wang while Aristocrat Gaming’s General Manager for Asia Lloyd Robson and Jade Entertainment and Gaming Technologies Founder and CEO Joe Pisano were joint third place.

Tengco said that he did not expect to win the award but that it “validated the efforts that we have been putting in over the past two years. It also proved that we are leading the agency in the right direction.”

This award inspires me to work harder so that our plans and aspirations for PAGCOR may become a reality during my tenure as chairman and CEO,” he said.

The Global Gaming Awards is a project of gaming publication Gambling Insider and is considered "one of the most prestigious awards in the industry," PAGCOR said in a press statement. 

Mariya Savova, the Event Manager, congratulated this year's winners and those who were shortlisted, adding that “nomination alone is still a fantastic achievement.”

The Philippines is now the most dynamic and innovative gaming market in Asia with developments in both the land-based and online verticals, so it certainly was a great pleasure to have the Global Gaming Awards Asia-Pacific here in Manila today,” she said during the ceremony.

This year’s panel of judges included Betty Zhao, Senior Vice President of International Operations at Aruze Gaming Global; Ken Jolly, VP and Managing Director, Asia at Light & Wonder; Jaclyn Wood, CEO of Global Players Network; and Lucas Cai, Vice President of Gaming at Mohegan INSPIRE Entertainment Resort, among others.
