Bruce Engstrom named to state Lottery Commission

Posted By on Thu, May 5, 2011 at 8:50 AM

House Speaker Robert Moore has named Bruce Engstrom, a North Little Rock accountant, to the nine-member state Lottery Commission. He succeeds Dr. Susan Ward-Jones of Marion in one of three slots filled by the speaker. It's a six-year term.

I've known Engstrom for years. When he says he intends to work for a competent, efficient and transparent state lottery operation, I believe him.

News release:

Representative Robert Moore, Speaker of the Arkansas House of Representatives, has announced the appointment of Bruce R. Engstrom of North Little Rock to the Arkansas Lottery Commission.

A lifelong Arkansan, Engstrom is a Certified Public Accountant who founded his practice in 1981; his firm is EGP, PLLC, with locations in North Little Rock, Bryant and Heber Springs. In addition to traditional accounting services, audit and tax consulting, the firm offers forensic accounting, and litigation support where Engstrom, as senior partner, focuses most of his time. Engstrom has been recognized in both federal and state courts as an expert in financial matters. He has been retained as an expert by the U.S. Department of Justice, the Attorney General of the State of Arkansas and the Arkansas Judicial Discipline Commission. In addition to his CPA certificate he holds additional certificates in business valuations and financial forensics.

“I am both honored and humbled by the confidence of Speaker Moore in appointing me to the Arkansas Lottery Commission. I will approach this assignment with the goal of educating myself about the operations of the Lottery Commission so as to be in a position to contribute in whatever way I can to a competent, efficient and transparent state lottery operation,” Engstrom said.
