Cipollini, Lupo leave Atlantic City’s Borgata for Hard Rock

Two senior vice presidents of Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa in Atlantic City are leaving the casino to take new positions at Hard Rock International.

Auggie Cipollini and Joe Lupo, both senior vice presidents of operations for Borgata Atlantic City, will leave the property.

“First and foremost, I will miss them both,” said Tom Balance, president and chief operating officer of the Borgata.“We started together during the pre-opening phase of Borgata; they have become my colleagues, advisers and, most importantly, my friends. I’m forever thankful to them for their endless contributions to developing our property, our culture and our success.”

The announcement comes three months after MGM Resorts International bought out Boyd Gaming’s 50 percent stake of Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa for $900 million.
