During the course of his more than 20-year career in gaming, Parrott established himself as one of the gaming industry’s brightest minds. He served as chairman and CEO of Boomtown, Inc. from 1988 to 1998. After Boomtown’s 1998 merger with Pinnacle Entertainment, Inc., he served on Pinnacle’s board of directors and offered his services as a consultant. Parrott also spent time as the chairman and CEO of the Las Vegas-based production company On Stage Entertainment.  In 2006, he moved to the gaming equipment manufacturing sector of the industry as president and CEO of the Americas for Aristocrat Technologies, Inc., overseeing operations in North America, Latin America and the Caribbean. 

After leaving Aristocrat in 2008, Mr. Parrott served as the CEO of Shuffle Master, Inc. from 2009 until shortly before his death in May 2010.

While at Boomtown in 1995, Parrott helped to form the AGA and was a founding member of its board of directors. He was subsequently elected to the board twice more, representing both Aristocrat Technologies and Shuffle Master.
