The September 16 appointment of Jacqueline Grace as senior vice president and general manager of the Tropicana means women run four of the nine casinos in Atlantic City. Grace also became the second black woman to oversee a casino in town, along with Borgata President Melonie Johnson.
“I started my gaming career in Atlantic City and I’m thrilled to return and join one of the top destinations in the market,” Grace said. “This is an exciting time for our company, and I’m looking forward to working with the team to further position Tropicana for continued growth and success.”
In addition to Grace and Johnson, Terry Glebocki, oversees Ocean Casino Resort as CEO and Karie Hall runs Bally’s as senior vice president and general manager.
Grace brings more than 20 years of experience to the role, most recently serving as vice president and assistant general manager at Caesars Entertainment’s Horseshoe Baltimore property. Prior to gaming, Grace spent nine years on Wall Street. She received a Master of Business Administration degree from the University of Virginia Darden School and a Bachelor of Engineering degree in electrical engineering from Stony Brook University.
