Bill Miller will join the American Gaming Association as CEO Jan. 14, bringing nearly two decades of lobbying experience as the casino and gambling industry group pushes ahead with a number of policy initiatives at the state and federal levels.

Miller most recently was senior vice president of government relations at Business Roundtable. He joined BRT in 2012 after nearly 13 years at the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, where he led political affairs and government relations efforts. He will succeed Geoff Freeman, who left AGA last year to become CEO of the Grocery Manufacturers Association.

“Much to the AGA’s credit, this is a remarkable time for gaming in America,” Miller said in a statement. “The industry is growing, acceptance of gaming as mainstream entertainment has never been higher and the opportunities to continue to advance gaming’s agenda are abundant.”
