HELENA, Montana (March 1, 2024) – Governor Greg Gianforte today announced the appointment of Bob Brown to serve as lottery director for the State of Montana.

“With his extensive experience in the legislature, Bob will lead the Montana Lottery well,” Gov. Gianforte said. “I am confident he will build upon the Montana Lottery’s progress that has more than doubled the amount of money transferred to the general fund and improved experiences with the games.”

Brown, who begins his appointment as lottery director on March 1, most recently served in the Montana State Legislature, representing Senate District 7. Brown assumes the role after the resignation of the former director, Scott Sales.

“It’s been an honor to serve the people of Montana in the legislature, and I look forward to continuing to do so in my new role as lottery director. Thank you to the governor for his continued support and confidence,” incoming director Brown said.

Brown was first elected to serve Montana in the state legislature in 2015, serving consecutive terms in the Montana House of Representatives until 2019. He was elected to the Montana State Senate in 2021.

Before entering public service, Brown spent most of his professional career as a general contractor in the construction industry and five years as a special needs educational coordinator at the Spring Creek Lodge Academy in Sanders County.
