Jamul Casino has promoted Theresa Grady to chief financial officer for the California resort. Grady has been with Jamul for almost four years and most recently served as director of finance.
In her former position, she was highly involved in building the casino’s finance, audit, vendor payments, payroll and count operations teams and helped spearhead completion of the casino’s recent refinance in January, working with lenders including Western Alliance Bank, Nevada State Bank, Columbia Bank, and CIT Bank.
Grady has nearly 25 years of experience in finance, with more than 14 in a casino setting. In her new role as CFO, she will oversee the compliance, procurement and Cash & Club Services departments, ensuring that the casino’s accounting and financial reporting meet regulatory requirements, developing operational goals and monitoring the performance of the organization’s profit objectives.
“I love working in the tribal gaming setting—it’s unique, challenging, and ever-changing,” said Grady. “I have especially loved working with the Jamul Tribe for the past several years. The tribe has a relatively young casino, but has been able to establish it as a respected leader in the San Diego gaming industry. Being a part of helping the tribe grow and prosper by creating this stable platform for future generations has been very rewarding.”
Jamul Casino President and General Manager Mary Cheeks called Grady “a fantastic leader. She is absolutely committed to ensuring the success of her team, the security of the casino’s finances, and the satisfaction of our guests.”
