Caesars Entertainment Corp. has named a regional president for its three Atlantic City casinos. Ronald Bauman will oversee Bally’s Atlantic City, Caesars Atlantic City and Harrah’s Resort Atlantic City as well as Caesars Interactive.
Baumann is no stranger to Atlantic City. For more than 17 years, he held senior leadership positions at multiple resort properties operated by Caesars. He is currently general manager and senior vice president of Indiana Grand Racing & Casino in Shelbyville, Indiana.
The position at Caesars opened up when former Regional President Kevin Ortzman left the company in August.
Bauman’s appointment comes as Eldorado and Caesars work on an $18.3 billion merger that would create the largest gaming company in the United States with nearly 60 casino properties in 16 states, including four of the nine casinos in Atlantic City. The deal is still pending shareholder approval as well as permission from federal and state regulators.
