Rating:

BERLIN, Vt. — The Vermont Lottery Commission (VLC) announced today the resignation of Executive Director, Greg Smith, effective October 14th. Smith is pursuing another opportunity after running Vermont's Lottery for over four years.

During Smith's tenure, Vermont Lottery sales and profits have grown by almost 20%, resulting in over $26M being contributed to Vermont's Education Fund in the last fiscal year. VLC Board Chairperson, Martha O'Connor, said, "We are sorry to see Greg go but understand his decision. The Board has had a strong working relationship with him and wish him success in his new position."

Smith added, "I have thoroughly enjoyed my four years working with the VLC Board and Lottery staff. It makes me sad to think about leaving but I do not want to pass up this other offer. I hope my successor is able to reach the same satisfaction that I did in this job."

The Vermont Lottery Commission will begin a search for a new Executive Director and work closely with the remaining management team to ensure the smooth operation of the lottery continues.

          .

          I was never going to say this, but you mentioned "beard".
          Yes, I have about ¼ of a ZZ-Top, myself, and I'm going for the full thing.

          It's caused my older sibling to start one.

          None of my siblings or anyone in my family could be considered particularly successful, though : (

          Greg Smith, in the article keeps his neat, and so he's going places.

          • Don't chase the numbers you play.
          • Play only numbers you've already played, plus however many random picks.
          • But, ALWAYS the regular numbers you play.  This will make you a winner, not a chaser.
                    (so far, though, I've yet to win any significant lotto prize)

               You already have John, Lisa & precious Tiffany Robinson sucking up all the lottery oxygen in that State, why oh why would you want to put the chief bottle washer through all that? Explain,and use small words ticket.

                If you going to go with the beard- let it be decent. No handle bars or fearsome chacongas.

                  Has been named new head of Illinois lottery. Is this a good hire?

                  Seems to be praised by Vermont lotto officials but looking at Vermont lottery in comparison to Illinois lottery it is small potatoes

                  The instant games in Vermont all look so awful ,, Illinois lottery is looking for good publicity/attention after fiasco's in recent years and I am not sure this is guy to run things

                  How much input did he have in the selection of Instant games in Vermont? Because things like $1,000 dollar club instant ticket that costs $10 would be laughed at and never go anywhere in Illinois


                  Who pays $10 a ticket for a game with $1,000 top prize?
