Hart to oversee client management and cashless casino launches for Sightline
LAS VEGAS (September 9, 2021) — Sightline Payments today announced the promotion of Mandi Hart to the role of Chief Client Solutions Officer. In this role, Hart will lead Sightline’s execution and deployment of new cashless gaming solutions for the digital and land-based casino and sports betting markets. Hart will continue to lead all client relationship management with Sightline’s more than 70 partners nationally.
Hart has been on the Sightline executive team for nearly a decade and will be elevated from her current role as senior vice president of client success. She brings over 20 years of operations experience in the gaming payments industry, including cash access, electronic check cashing, ATM and kiosk solutions. Prior to joining Sightline, Hart served as Associate Vice President of Gaming Business Development at FIS (NYSE:FIS).

During her tenure at Sightline, she has launched more than 70 programs to drive digital payments solutions for the gaming industry. Hart and her team are also responsible for Sightline’s launches in new states that have legalized sports betting including Arizona and Wyoming where Play+ is now live.
With Hart’s appointment to this new role, 50% of Sightline’s C-suite leadership team is now female. Hart joins Chief Legal Officer Jennifer Carleton, Chief Marketing Officer Muriel Lotto, and Chief People Officer Katrina Sevier as female chief executives at Sightline.
“Over the past decade, Mandi has played an integral role in driving the overall success of Sightline’s business,” said Sightline Co-CEO Joe Pappano. “Mandi is the perfect person to help our clients execute the casino gaming industry’s digital transformation as we continue to accelerate Sightline’s growth. Reflecting back on Sightline’s incredible success over the past year, I know we would not be where we are without our immensely talented female leaders like Mandi. We’re delighted to welcome her to Sightline’s executive team and continue to lead the gaming industry in our commitment to diversity.”
“I’m excited to serve in this new role to help deploy our solutions and work shoulder-to-shoulder with our partners to further their businesses as Sightline further extends its products to help drive digital payments solutions in the digital and land-based casino industries,” said Sightline Chief Client Solutions Officer Mandi Hart. “Over my nine years, I’ve seen Sightline grow tremendously, but I am most proud of the efforts we have placed on ensuring diversity within our leadership. I look forward to joining three other incredible women as C-suite leaders of Sightline and working to continue this momentum across the industry.”
