Having been widely praised for his success in overseeing the Boston Harbor Casinos launch, despite the obvious legal challenges that property had encountered even before it opened, the man in charge of that property that being Bob DeSalvio has decided to quit the company.
Wynn Resorts, the parent company of that casino has been quick to assure all interested parties that his departure is amicable, and it was his decision to leave the company and step down, rather than any type of boardroom coup.
That does of course pose the question who, if anyone in Wynn Resorts is going to fill his shoes, and it has just been announced that the former Ritz-Carlton executive Brian Gullbrants has been chosen to replace him and will be doing so immediately.
Gullbrants has been at the Boston Harbor Casino in Everett since it opened, for he has been in charge of the property’s food and beverage department, and is best placed to take over the day to day running of the casino resort and ensure a smooth transition of stewardship with the departure of DeSalvio.
The Boston Harbor Casino made $48.9 million in September of this year, and whilst those figures are slightly lower than the August figures, they do prove the casino resort is making a healthy profit and the departure of DeSalvio is nothing to do with the profitability of that property.
It was reported yesterday that the Nevada Gaming Commission are currently investigating Steve Wynn and will soon make their decision whether to ban him from the gambling industry in Nevada, however Wynn did of course also step down from his position recently due to sexual misconduct allegations which he has always denied.
