The Pueblo of Pojoaque, owner of the Buffalo Thunder Casino Resort and Cities of Gold Casino in Santa Fe, New Mexico, last month announced its retention of Randall A. Fine and the Fine Point Group as the properties’ chief executive officer and strategic marketing and operations consultant.
“As part of the comprehensive restructuring of our bond obligations, the largest such restructuring in tribal history, we launched a nationwide search for leaders that could take our facilities to new heights,” said Governor George Rivera of the Pueblo of Pojoaque. “We believe that with Randy’s change-oriented leadership, coupled with the intellectual horsepower of the industry’s largest consulting firm, we will be able to dramatically improve our results in the years ahead.”
Three executives from the Fine Point Group have assumed executive roles at Buffalo Thunder. Randy Fine will serve as the property’s chief executive officer; Christopher P. Colwell will serve as chief operating officer; and Marlene R. Reyes will serve as chief marketing officer. In addition, more than a dozen professionals from the Fine Point Group will provide comprehensive consulting services relating to casino operations and relationship marketing, including the rollout of its proprietary Algorithm-Based Segmentation strategy.
The Fine Point Group reportedly beat out some larger and more recognizable management companies in reaching the agreements with the Pueblo of Pojoaque.
