Just weeks after Terry Glebocki unexpectedly resigned as CEO of Ocean Casino Resort, the property promoted Bill Callahan as interim CEO.
According to the Associated Press, the state Division of Gaming Enforcement approved the appointment on November 9.
Prior to the appointment Callahan, a 25-year industry veteran, served as executive vice president and senior vice president of Ocean. He came over from Borgata, part of a contingent of executives who left to join Ocean. Borgata sued Ocean for poaching and theft of trade secrets. The suit settled in May.
Neither the casino nor its owner, New York hedge fund Luxor Capital Partners, would comment Tuesday.
Callahan has 25 years of experience in the casino industry.
At the Borgata, Callahan spent 17 years as vice president of relationship marketing, responsible for a team that handled table games, slots, and Asian-games marketing.
