Caesars Entertainment Inc. has announced the appointment of John Koster as the company’s Eastern Division’s new regional president.
Koster formerly served as the Lake Tahoe properties’ senior vice president and general manager. He had also led the company’s Western Division as president. He will now be in charge of the operator’s Atlantic City venues.
Anthony Carano, president and chief operating officer of Caesars Entertainment, said: “John’s in-depth knowledge of the gaming industry, as well as his passion for going all in on service, make him the logical choice to lead our East Coast properties into the future.
“The next three years, particularly in Atlantic City, will be an exciting time for our company, with $400m in upgrades and enhancements planned at our resorts. Our master capital plan will undoubtedly transform Atlantic City as a top destination market, and I am confident that under John’s leadership, our East Coast properties will be well-positioned for long-term success.”
In Pennsylvania and Maryland, Koster’s nomination is still awaiting regulatory approval.
