Batjer Leaves Caesars

Marybel Batjer resigned last month as vice president of public policy and corporate social responsibility of Caesars Entertainment, to become secretary of government operations for the state of California, pending confirmation by the California state Senate. Governor Jerry Brown announced the appointment last month in Sacramento.

Batjer would be in charge of the agency that administers state operations such as procurement, information technology and human resources, according to the Sacramento Bee.

Batjer joined Caesars Entertainment in 2005. Before that, she worked in state and federal government in Nevada, California and Washington, D.C. She served as cabinet secretary for former Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger of California from 2003 to 2005, chief of staff for Nevada Governor Kenny Guinn from 2000 to 2003 and undersecretary at the California Business, Transportation and Housing Agency from 1997 to 1998 under Governor Pete Wilson.
