As the US starts re-opening the country, BoardEx examines the gaming industry, a sector with high exposure to the coronavirus outbreak (and likely its aftermath).

Of the companies analyzed, Genting Singapore Ltd. had the highest percentage of women in leadership, clocking in at 60%. The gaming companies whose leadership is composed of 0% women include Las Vegas Sands Corp. (LVS) and MGM Growth Properties LLC (MGP).

The data showed that no gaming companies analyzed had a female CEO. However, there were 5 CFOs, including Ruth Catherine Prior of William Hill plc and Julie Mireille Cameron-Doe of Aristocrat Leisure Ltd.

In terms of board leadership, only four companies analyzed had boards made up more than 40% women — Vici Properties Inc., Wynn Resorts Ltd., Aristocrat Leisure Ltd. and SkyCity Entertainment Group Ltd.

The boards of the companies also had average age ranges between 51, the number at William Hill plc, and 73.4, which was the number clocked at Hong Kong-based Galaxy Entertainment Group Ltd. Likewise, the company that had the board members with the longest average tenures was also at Galaxy, where the average board member serves more than 19 years.

The only companies whose board members have an average tenure of less than 2 years are Caesars Entertainment, William Hill plc, and Vici Properties Inc.
