Michael D. Gallagher

Entertainment Software Association (ESA)
President and CEO

Mr. Gallagher joined ESA in 2007. Under his leadership, the association is transforming the perception of video games by demonstrating the influence of entertainment software on areas of daily life such as education, health, and the workplace. In particular, ESA has heightened awareness and appreciation of the value of video games as next-generation teaching tools, and their increasing impact on classroom learning. Mr. Gallagher’s accomplishments include ESA’s co-founding of the Games, Learning and Assessment Lab (GlassLab) – a ground-breaking collaboration among ESA, Institute of Play, Electronic Arts, Educational Testing Service, Pearson’s Center for Digital Data, Analytics & Adaptive Learning as well as The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and The John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation – to research and develop digital game-based learning and assessment tools. In addition, he spearheaded ESA’s involvement in the Active Play Presidential Active Lifestyle Award (PALA+) Challenge, a joint effort with the President’s Council on Fitness, Sports & Nutrition that leverages active video games to encourage physical activity and good nutrition among America’s youth.
