Felix Rappaport, a highly regarded and beloved casino executive, died on June 18 in the place he most loved, a suite at Foxwoods Casino Resort where he was president and CEO. A former Wynn and MGM executive, Rappaport was appointed president and CEO of Foxwoods in 2014. Since that time, Foxwoods has improved its financial performance and backed away from the fiscal cliff it was approaching. Rappaport explained how his team has approached their task, the simple solutions they employed to improve performance, and how the Mashantucket Pequots now have a five-year plan for Foxwoods. He spoke with GGB Publisher Roger Gros at his offices in Foxwoods in August 2016.
