DeSalvio Hired by Wynn Boston

One of Pennsylvania’s most successful casinos is searching for a new president after the only leader of Sands Bethlehem stepped down last month.

Robert DeSalvio stepped down in March to accept the top post at the Wynn Resorts casino project near Boston.

DeSalvio’s tenure in Bethlehem was remarkably successful. Since 2009, the casino has been one of the best performers in the state. The table game win was almost a quarter of the entire state win in 2013, and the slot win was second only to Parx Casino in suburban Philadelphia.

LVS President and COO Michael Leven said it was DeSalvio’s choice to leave, and he was disappointed. Leven said the company is “exploring the best approach to fulfill Bob’s role.”

Prior to joining LVS, DeSalvio spent almost 10 years at Foxwoods in marketing capacities following many years in Atlantic City at the Sands property there (no relation to LVS).
