Finocchiaro has 35 years of experience in technology and data management. He spent the last 10 years as director of IT operations and support at Oneida Nations Enterprises in Verona, New York, overseeing technical services for four casinos, including its flagship property, Turning Stone Resort & Casino; three sports books; five hotel properties; 40 food and beverage venues; and a number of other amenities.
“Garret is an experienced, high-level casino executive with a proven track record of success,” said Ortiz. “He has helped tribal nations build a forward-thinking mindset with long-term strategic insights into technology and security. We are honored to bring him to Milwaukee as we build a new future for Potawatomi Casino & Hotel.”
