Rockey Appointed Director of Lottery and Charitable Gaming Division

LINCOLN — Tax Commissioner Tony Fulton announced today that Brian Rockey, former manager in the Nebraska Department of Revenue Lottery and Charitable Gaming Division, is being appointed Director as of July 1, 2016.

Director Rockey, 55, has a Bachelor of Arts degree from Creighton University, a Master of Arts from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, and a Master of Public Administration from the University of Nebraska-Omaha. Rockey previously served the Lottery Division in various capacities, including Marketing Manager, from startup in 1993 through 2011. He then worked for International Game Technology (IGT, formerly known as GTECH), the primary contractor for the Nebraska Lottery. He now returns to the Lottery and Charitable Gaming Division as its Director.

“It is an honor and a privilege to serve Nebraskans again in this new capacity. I want to thank Tax Commissioner Fulton for the trust he has placed in me. I’ll have the opportunity to work with many of the same wonderful people I worked with before, and I look forward to taking the Nebraska Lottery and Charitable Gaming Division into the future.”

Tax Commissioner Fulton would like to thank Jill Marshall (Acting Lottery Director) and Aaron Hendry (Acting Charitable Gaming Director) for their service since 2014. “I have appreciated all of their efforts. They have been critical to the continued success of this Division,” said Fulton.

The Nebraska Lottery and Charitable Gaming Divisions of the Department of Revenue were merged under a single administrator in July 2007. The creation of the Lottery and Charitable Gaming Division resulted in greater organizational efficiencies and enhanced service delivery.

The mission of the Nebraska Lottery is to generate proceeds for good causes while providing quality entertainment options to Nebraskans. Over $596 million has been raised for the Nebraska Lottery’s beneficiary funds since the Lottery began in 1993. All 93 counties in Nebraska have benefited from projects funded with these Nebraska Lottery proceeds.
