TEN Casino has recently announced the clearing of yet another obstacle that would bring the gambling venue closer to its projected 2017 opening. According to the official statement, the casino has hired new executives that would bring “unmatched expertise” to the upcoming Atlantic City Casino.
TEN Casino is the new name of Atlantic City’s former Revel Casino which was shut down in 2014 due to financial difficulties, along with three other properties that year. The $2.2 billion casino went through a period of neglect, after which it was sold to Florida real estate developer Glenn Straub for a price of $82 million, back in 2015.
After a long dispute with ACR energy and Bank of New York Mellon over the power supply of Revel Casino, Glen Straub was finally able to purchase the property’s power supply plant and he subsequently rebranded the property to TEN Casino and hired top talent from the former Revel project.
Profiting on the closure of the Trump Taj Mahal, TEN casino has hired two executives from the now-closed New Jersey landmark. The casino has hired Frank Leone, former gaming operations executive from the Trump Taj Mahal as the senior VP of casino operations as well as Cindi LePine as the vice president of hotel operations. The two executives were hired along with Vincent Turrano, former food and beverage vice president at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel and Casino Tampa.
TEN Casino’s CEO, Robert Landino, says that the company was thrilled to announce the best “in-class” executive team, which, according to his words, is what will “make the difference” between the new casino and the former failed venue.
