Gerald S. Aubin


Gerald S. Aubin is the third Executive Director to lead the Rhode Island Lottery, appointed to the position in May 1996.

Prior to overseeing the state’s Lottery, Aubin served 21 years as a police officer for the City of Providence, Rhode Island, retiring as Deputy Chief of Police, and then served as the Director of the Rhode Island Municipal Police Academy.

Under his leadership as the Rhode Island Lottery Executive Director, revenues grew from $456 million to $1.5 billion; and the payment to the state’s General Fund increased from $90.4 million to $281 million.

Aubin implemented several procedural and management ideas to provide proactive security measures, as well as ensure ongoing upgrades and maintenance to technology systems that serve the state’s 1,200 Lottery Retailers. As a result, the Rhode Island Lottery employs some of the most advanced systems available to meet the state’s needs, and enjoys the benefit of new games, often designed specifically for the Rhode Island consumer.

The sound practices employed by the Rhode Island Lottery earned consistent recognition by the Government Finance Officers Association of the United States and Canada for achieving the highest standards in government accounting and financial reporting. In doing so, the Rhode Island Lottery became the first state agency in Rhode Island to receive the Comprehensive Annual Financial Report (CAFR) Award.

A graduate of Bryant College in Smithfield , RI , and the FBI National Academy , Aubin is currently 1st Vice President for the National Association of State and Provincial Lotteries (NASPL) Executive Committee and Chair of the NASPL Security Committee. Aubin is also President to the Multi-State Lottery Association (MUSL). He also volunteers on the Board of Directors of Amos House, which provides food and services to impoverished individuals living in Rhode Island.
