Senior Vice President, Strategic Communications
Casey Clark is senior vice president, strategic communications at the American Gaming Association (AGA). As a member of the senior leadership team, he drives organizational strategy and operations and oversees communications and research aimed at protecting and enhancing the reputation of the $261 billion gaming industry. Clark serves as a primary spokesperson on industry and association priorities.
After joining the AGA in September 2017, Clark led a collaborative effort to transform the association’s communications function through a reimagined industry narrative around responsibility in gaming; enhanced collaboration with member company executives and industry communicators; and refocused proprietary research programs to advance industry policy priorities. He crafted the AGA’s award-winning communications strategy to advance legal sports betting following the landmark Supreme Court decision invalidating the Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act of 1992.
Clark is a trusted leader with robust corporate, crisis, and advocacy communications experience. He previously served as a managing director in the corporate communications practice at FTI consulting, where he managed a wide range of client relationships, including public and private companies in highly scrutinized industries, trade associations, and nonprofit organizations. Before FTI, Clark was a manager at Burson-Marsteller.
Earlier in his career, Clark served in several capacities in the executive offices of the American Chemistry Council and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, providing strategic counsel to C-suite executives in both organizations and supporting global programmatic and policy priorities. Clark began his career as a public affairs assistant for the AFL-CIO Housing Investment Trust.
