Cannery CHOOSES NEW GMs

Cannery Casino Resorts has selected new general managers for two of its Las Vegas resorts, Rampart Casino and the Eastside Cannery Casino & Hotel.

Company veteran Patrick Hughes was promoted to the position of general manager at Rampart Casino, where he served as senior director of table games prior to rising in rank. Hughes, an Irish casino dealer who has worked for resorts around the world, moved to Las Vegas in 1996, where worked for Boulder Station and New York-New York before joining the team at Rampart Casino.

“Patrick Hughes brings a wealth of knowledge and experience in the casino gaming industry and has proven himself as a valuable asset and leader to the Cannery Casino Resorts team,” said Cannery COO Xavier Walsh. “We are confident that Hughes will continue to build upon Rampart’s reputation as Summerlin’s premier gaming property.”

Gaming industry veteran Marty Gross has been appointed to the position of vice president and general manager at the Eastside Cannery property. Gross comes to the Eastside Cannery from tribal casinos in California and Arizona, but prior to venturing outside of Las Vegas, Gross worked for M Resort, Station Casinos, the Four Queens and MGM Grand.

“We are pleased to have Gross as a part of our CCR team,” Walsh said. “We are confident that his solid management skills and expertise in the gaming industry will make him a great asset to our company.”
