Caesars Appoints New GMs in AC

Caesars Appoints New GMs in AC

Covid-19 or not, when two casinos see gaming revenue declines of more than 40 percent, it’s not surprising when someone gets a pink slip.

Caesars Entertainment in Atlantic City has parted ways with Ron Baumann, whose casinos saw a 46.8 percent decrease in revenues at Harrah’s, in the city’s Marina District, and a 43.8 percent dip at Caesars, located on the Atlantic City Boardwalk.

Gregg Klein will assume the role of senior vice president and general manager at Harrah’s. Joseph Lodise will take the same title at Caesars Atlantic City.

Both men have experience in Atlantic City. Lodise, a Villanova graduate, worked for Harrah’s for 10 years, serving as vice president of finance until his promotion to general manager with Caesars Entertainment’s Horseshoe Tunica casino in Mississippi in 2017. He spent six months as top man in another Caesars property in Mississippi before going back to Atlantic City.
