Affinity Gaming Names New CEO

Affinity Gaming has named a new CEO and added three new members to its board of directors.

Affinity, which is based in Las Vegas and owns 11 properties in four states, named Michael Silberling as CEO late last month. Silberling replaced David Ross, who left the company at the end of July. Silberling will also fill Ross’ role on the company’s board.

Silberling spent 20 years at Caesars Entertainment Corp., most recently as president of Caesars’ international operations, overseeing 12 resorts in seven countries. He also oversaw Harrah’s casinos in Iowa and Missouri, two of Affinity’s regional markets.
