Atlanta businessman Al Trujillo was named Friday by Gov. Nathan to the Georgia Lottery board.
His appointment fills one of two vacant seats on the board. Former board member Debbie Dlugolenski Alford resigned in October to lead the lottery’s daily operations as its president and CEO.
Another former board member, Frances Rogers, quit the same month in protest. She said Deal’s involvement touting Alford for the lottery job compromised the board’s search to replace retiring lottery President Margaret DeFrancisco.
Trujillo, a Georgia Tech graduate, is an investment funds adviser. He retired in 2007 as president and CEO of document management company Recall Corporation.
