Bennison Named Chief Nevada Enforcer

Karl Bennison, who has served at the top of the enforcement division for the Nevada Gaming Control Board in the northern part of the state, was named chief of the entire division last month.

Bennison will replace Jerry Markling, who is retiring at the end of August to accept a position at the Venetian in Las Vegas.

Bennison has worked for the control board as an agent, special agent and supervisor. He was the board’s senior research specialist in the administration division and worked on special projects for various board members before being promoted to deputy chief for Northern Nevada enforcement.
