management needs of the members of the gaming industry,” said Greg Mosher, SIG Managing
Director. “We are excited to launch what we strongly believe will be a game changer in this
industry. As always, SIG is eager to make an impact and work with industry members to address
their unique challenges.”
The program will be led by Lorrie Miller, Senior Vice President, as well as gaming industry veteran
Joseph Zinnecker, Director of Loss Control, who brings over 20 years of risk management and loss
control experience with land-based and river boat casinos.
“We bring complex risk management and loss control experience to the gaming industry” said
Zinnecker. “Our philosophy is a custom boutique approach to provide value added services for all of
the unique exposures in the gaming industry.”
