Reports emerged this weekend said that the Las-Vegas based Caesars Entertainment will soon name a new CEO.
US.- Caesars Entertainment is set to name a new Chief Executive Officer (CEO) this week. According to several financial publications published this weekend, Anthony Rodio will become the successor to Mark Frissora.
The top executive of Affinity Gaming is expected to be announced as Frissora’s successor. Despite reports from The Wall Street Journal, MarketWatch and StreetInsider, a spokesman for the company had no comment.
Rodio has been a strong candidate for the position thanks to his association with investor Carl Icahn. The top executive is no stranger to the Las Vegas market: Affinity Gaming has five Nevada casinos, as well as facilities in Colorado, Missouri and Iowa. Furthermore, he also worked with Icahn at Tropicana Entertainment before it was sold to Eldorado Resorts last October for US$1.85 billion.
Anthony Rodio has more than three decades of industry experience. He was based in Atlantic City and served as president and CEO of Tropicana Entertainment. After it was closed, he moved to Affinity in Las Vegas.
