Cordish Fills Two Gaming Group Positions

The Cordish Companies hired two key executives for the gaming division. Cathy Beeding (l.) becomes executive vice president and general counsel and Suzanne Trout (below) executive vice president and chief marketing officer.

Beeding and Trout join Cordish Gaming Group as the company expands its footprint in locales like Pennsylvania, with recently opened Live! Casino properties in Pittsburgh and Philadelphia.

Beeding is responsible for all legal, regulatory and compliance affairs, including oversight of all Live! Casino & Hotel properties in Maryland and Pennsylvania, along with iGaming and sports betting initiatives.

Prior to Cordish, Beeding served in a similar position at Churchill Downs Incorporated, responsible for managing compliance across the company’s casinos, racinos, racetracks and online sportsbooks and casinos.

Trout will plan and execute marketing and brand development. She served as chief marketing officer at Foxwoods Resort Casino. She launched her career in hotel operations at the Tropicana Resort in Atlantic City, quickly moving into marketing as the director of marketing before moving to the Tropicana in Las Vegas.
