Jan 7, 2013 6:38 PM

Frank Fahrenkopf, Jr., who has led the American Gaming Association (AGA) since its founding in 1995, announced Monday he will leave his post on June 30.

Reportedly, the AGA has been planning for Fahrenkopf’s departure for the past couple of years.

Fahrenkopf’s most notable accomplishment during his AGA years was the development and subsequent success of G2E, the industry’s annual trade show.

A well-known Nevada lawyer specializing in gaming, Fahrenkopf also was active in Republican politics, having chaired the GOP’s National Committee for a half-dozen years.
