What are some things you learned at the company?

Since joining Camelot Illinois, I helped build the Insights function, which I now lead. I love flexing between managing others and driving strategic decision-making across the organization. We are simultaneously figuring out our individual contributions, as well as how we work together to run the business. Its challenging and personally rewarding!

Larisa

What's the biggest problem your team is solving?

People win the Lottery every day. From a return on the price of the ticket to $1,000 to $200 million, every dollar makes a positive impact on winners lives, and, in return, to the citizens of the state. We are working to restore faith in the Illinois Lottery and reassure Illinoisans that players do win.
