Casino Homecoming

What goes around, comes around, at least in the gaming industry, where two important executives returned home.

Gaming industry veteran Stephen L. Cavallaro, who has more than 30 years of casino and hospitality experience, has been appointed president of Station Casinos, which has 17 properties in Southern Nevada.

Cavallaro was executive vice president and chief operating officer of Station Casinos, Inc. from 2001 to 2004. For the past eight years, he has been chairman and CEO of Cavallaro Consulting Group. He began his career at Harrah’s Entertainment, and later became senior vice president and general manager of the Hard Rock Hotel, and executive VP and COO of Harveys Casino Resorts.

Meanwhile, MGM Resorts International has announced that Lorenzo Creighton has rejoined the company. A veteran of the gaming industry and MGM Resorts, Creighton will focus on the company’s efforts in developing markets in the Eastern U.S., the company stated.

Creighton, who began his career as a regulator in Iowa and Mississippi, most recently was the COO for Canadian gaming company Gateway Casinos. He has also served as president of several MGM properties, including MGM Grand Detroit.

Creighton brings “the perspective of his extensive experience, both as an industry regulator in two U.S. states and as a seasoned business executive,” to his new role, according to a statement from the company.
