Mohegan Gaming appoints new CEO

Tribal casino operator Mohegan Gaming and Entertainment (MGE) has announced the appointment of Mario Kontomerkos as its chief executive officer, effective October 16.

Kontomerkos replaces Bobby Soper, and will oversee all day-to-day operations for MGE, including ongoing brand growth and continuing to ensure MGE delivers unmatched personalized services and memorable guest experiences.

Kontomerkos has served as the chief financial officer for MGE since September 2011.

"Having served as a senior executive for Mohegan Gaming & Entertainment for nearly six years, Mario has, in his role as chief financial officer, actively supported Mohegan's development of new opportunities in the United States and abroad," said Kevin Brown "Red Eagle", chairman of the Mohegan Tribe and MGE Management Board.

"Mario's knowledge and experience has kept us disciplined in our financial approach, competitive in the gaming and entertainment industry, and always cognizant of a business and management approach aligned with our Tribal Culture and the Mohegan Way. We trust he will only further build MGE as a compelling, all-encompassing brand - solidifying MGE as an industry leader in integrated resort experiences around the world."

"Due to the incredible efforts of a very talented, dedicated, and special group of people here at MGE, we have over the last five years quietly been part of an amazing turnaround story in our industry," said Mario Kontomerkos, chief executive officer of MGE. "I am grateful to the Mohegan Tribe and the MGE team members for the opportunity to lead MGE into our next phase of growth."

Mohegan Sun is a manager of multiple properties throughout the United States, and developer of the Inspire Integrated Resort in South Korea.
