Mohegan appoints Nelson Parker as new Chief Strategy Officer

Mohegan, the US-based gaming operator, has announced the promotion of Nelson Parker to the position of Chief Strategy Officer.

According to a press release issued on Monday, Parker, who previously served as Senior Vice President of Strategic Development at Mohegan, will now be responsible for identifying, assessing, and executing growth opportunities and strategic new ventures globally.

“Nelson has vast experience and a proven track record in strategic development and growth within the gaming and hospitality sectors,” said Mohegan President and CEO Ray Pineault. “His skills will be invaluable as we continue to expand our footprint globally and explore new opportunities.”

Parker’s promotion comes after Mohegan’s inaugural foray into the Asian market, marked by the launch of INSPIRE—a $1.6 billion integrated resort project situated in Incheon, South Korea.

Before joining Mohegan in 2022, Parker served as a Managing Director at Driftwood Capital, a private equity fund focused on hospitality investments.

The firm confirms that Parker brings to Mohegan ‘extensive experience in the gaming industry,’ having previously served as the Senior Vice President of Corporate Development at Penn National Gaming, Senior Vice President of Hotel & Casino Development at Hard Rock International, Vice President of Development at Foxwoods Resort Casino, and Corporate Director of Development at Argosy Gaming.

In his fresh role, Parker assumes a pivotal position in steering future growth and capital planning endeavors. Tasked with initiating and scrutinizing growth prospects, he collaborates across all departments. Parker will closely collaborate with the executive team to synchronize strategic initiatives with Mohegan’s overarching long-term objectives and vision.
