The second-largest gaming and entertainment operator on the Las Vegas Strip, Caesars Entertainment, parted ways with up to ten of its entertainment executives, a new report claims. As announced by the Las Vegas Review-Journal last week, up to ten high-ranking entertainment executives were left out.
The latest report cites sources close to the matter, yet at the time of writing, Caesars hasn’t publicly disclosed any details on the topic. News about the number of executives that reportedly departed from the company follow the leave of Jason Gastwirth, Caesars’ president of entertainment. Back in December, Gastwirth confirmed his plans to step down from the company, ending his 13-year tenure.
According to the recent report, executives that may have been affected include Amy Naples, Jessica Tindor and Chris Yancey. Reportedly, Paul Shlisky, Mike Hodin and Mark Weinstein also parted ways with Caesars.
The departure of entertainment executives coincided with the start of Amy Graca’s tenure as senior vice president of entertainment at Caesars on January 2. Before assuming her new role, she held the position of senior vice president of ticketing at the leading gaming and entertainment company.
Additionally, Caesars confirmed its plans to release its fourth quarter and full year results for 2023. Last week, the company confirmed it would release its report on February 20, 2024.
The Company Hasn’t Confirmed a Reason for the Reshuffle
The leading gaming and entertainment giant is yet to confirm the reason for the senior-level reshuffle within its entertainment division. Currently, Caesars operates some of the most popular casino resorts on the Las Vegas Strip, including Caesars Palace, Paris Las Vegas Hotel & Casino, as well as The LINQ Hotel + Experience, among others.
Back in December, Caesars Digital inked an important partnership, allowing it to grow its North American footprint. At the time, the company confirmed it joined forces with Hacksaw Gaming in a new deal for the market in Ontario, Canada. As a result, the leading iGaming content provider’s portfolio will be able to reach new customers through Caesars Digital.
Upon confirming the announcement, Caesars Digital revealed that the titles from Hacksaw Gaming will be integrated into Caesars Sportsbook and Casino, as well as Caesars Palace Online Casino. The two platforms currently operate within the regulated online gambling market in the province.
