The current senior vice president of sales will replace Tom Shaheen as president of the Mississippi Lottery Corporation

US.- The Mississippi Lottery Corporation has appointed Jeffrey L. Hewitt, senior vice president of sales and marketing, as president.

Hewitt takes over from the corporation’s first president, Tom Shaheen, who will retire on June 30.

Hewitt was one of the first employees brought into the corporation in June 2019, after Mississippi passed the Alyce G. Clarke Mississippi Lottery Law in 2018, establishing a state lottery.

The Mississippi Lottery Corporation is the private company that runs the state lottery. Hewitt said his main vision for leading the corporation is to continue to grow what Shaheen has built.

He said: “Tom, the current president, has really laid out a great path for us. We’re on a good course, we don’t see dramatic changes, deviating from the path that we’re on.

“We just want to keep moving forward, keep growing the product.”
