The Wyoming Lottery is deeply saddened by the loss of board member and friend Brian Scott Gamroth, who died in a motorcycle crash on Sunday.
Brian was appointed by Governor Matt Mead to the Wyoming Lottery Commission on July 1, 2013 as the founding chairman of the board prior to the beginning of the organization.
As chairman of the board, Brian deftly led WyoLotto through its first three years and was integral to the organization’s planning, hiring, marketing, launch, and revenue flow processes. Never afraid to roll up his sleeves, Brian devoted a substantial amount of his personal time and attention to projects that benefited his community and the state of Wyoming.
“Brian was passionate about the Wyoming Lottery, and it was a great joy to work with him to make it a reality. Personally, he was more than a board member – he was a business partner, a trusted advisor, and perhaps above all, a friend. His influence on WyoLotto is immeasurable, and his contributions to the organization will be appreciated by those who work at the lottery and the entire state of Wyoming for many years to come,” said Jon Clontz, WyoLotto CEO.
Mark Macy, WyoLotto’s current chairman of the board, said, “The lottery board is devastated with the loss of Brian Gamroth, one of its founding members and the first Chairman of the Board of Directors. Brian was ten foot tall and bullet proof. His leadership, quick wit and friendship will be sorely missed.”
