Robert Jacobson has been the Executive Director of the California Council on Problem Gambling since 2011, and his unique perspectives in the field are derived from both his personal and professional experiences. Robert grew up in Las Vegas, where his family worked in the gaming industry for more than 25 years and he followed suit, taking his first casino job in 1995. In 1998, he moved to California, where he continued to work in gaming until 2010.
Robert is currently the President of the board of directors for the National Council on Problem Gambling, serves on the advisory board for California Office of Problem Gambling, and served two appointed terms on the Gaming Policy Advisory Committee (GPAC) for the California Gambling Control Commission. His prior casino experience includes table games, food and beverage, marketing, and human resources.
