Fiumara to Head Golden Casino Operations

Golden Entertainment has promoted STRAT Las Vegas General Manager Chris Fiumara to the position of regional senior vice president of operations.

In his new role, Fiumara will oversee most of the company’s casino portfolio, including the STRAT, two Arizona Charlie’s casinos in Las Vegas, three casinos in Pahrump, Nevada, and the Rocky Gap Casino Resort in Maryland.

His replacement at the STRAT is Stephen Thayer, a 15-year veteran of Caesars Entertainment who most recently served as general manager of Harrah’s Atlantic City.

Publicly traded Golden also operates three casinos in Laughlin, Nevada, some 60 branded gaming taverns across the state and more than 10,000 slot machines in bars, restaurants, truck stops and grocery stores in Nevada and Montana.
