NJ Lottery Announces New Deputy Executive Director

TRENTON (March 18, 2022) – New Jersey Lottery Executive Director James Carey announced today that Marc J. Marseglia, a career state employee, has been appointed as the new Deputy Executive Director of the Lottery. His tenure begins effective immediately.


“I am pleased to work with Marc in his new role. He joined our team in September 2020 as the Lottery’s Chief of Staff. He assimilated quickly due to his vast institutional knowledge, coupled with his established key relationships and experience in dealing with complicated regulations,” said Carey.  “As a dedicated public servant, Marc’s ability to balance day-to-day issues and long-term goals has been key to both his success and the Lottery’s, furthering our ability to provide a stable source of funding for the state pension system and many other worthwhile programs and services.”


During his time as Chief of Staff of the Lottery, Marseglia led the effort to strengthen its workforce by recruiting and onboarding new employees during a historically difficult time for employers looking to attract new hires.  As Deputy Executive Director, Marseglia will continue with his prior responsibilities and take on a lead role in managing the Lottery’s overall business operations and will be the direct supervisor of the Lottery’s operational units.


Prior to joining the Lottery, Marseglia had extensive experience working for state government. He spent over 15 years at New Jersey’s Unclaimed Property Administration (UPA), serving just under five years as their Chief of Staff.  During his time at the UPA, Marseglia managed personnel, directed business process re-engineering efforts, led large projects, and ran its overall operations.


“With over $30 billion in profits since our inception, the success of the Lottery has had an enormous impact on the state and its residents,” said Marseglia.  “The Lottery already has a great foundation in place to grow that success in the future.  I look forward to helping lead us there.”


The Lottery is the state’s fifth largest revenue producer benefiting the residents of New Jersey. Since its inception in 1970, the Lottery has contributed over $30 billion to the state, helping to support many worthwhile programs and services.  Lottery profits currently help bolster the public employee pension system for teachers, police, fire personnel and other public employees under a 30-year agreement signed into law in 2017.
