LOTTERY WILL TRANSITION TO NEW DIRECTOR

PUEBLO – The Colorado Lottery will transition to a new director, announced Roxy Huber, executive director of the Colorado Department of Revenue. Lottery Director Jack Boehm is leaving the organization to spend more time with his family in Michigan. Appointed director in July 2008, Boehm joined the organization in January 2008 as chief operating officer. He will spend the next 90 days assisting with the transition to a new director.

“Jack achieved much during his tenure and while we are sad to see him go, we understand how important his family commitments are,” said Huber.

The search for a new director will begin as soon as possible and the position will remain based in the Lottery’s Pueblo headquarters. Lottery Deputy Director Tom Kitts will serve as acting director until a replacement is found.

The Lottery’s mission is to maximize revenue for Colorado residents. Proceeds from the Lottery’s games – Powerball, Cash 5, Scratch, and Lotto - stay in Colorado to improve the quality of life in the state. The Lottery has returned more than $2 billion to the state of Colorado since its founding in 1983. Through Great Outdoors Colorado, the Conservation Trust Fund and Colorado State Parks, the Lottery has provided funding for new trails, precious open space and wildlife protection.
