Fort Heads Up Gaming at Aliante

Station Casinos recently announced the selection of gaming industry veteran John Fort as director of gaming operations at its new California property, Aliante Station. Fort, who has worked in both Las Vegas and Atlantic City for almost 40 years, will supervise all casino operations when Aliante Station opens November 11. His responsibilities will include overseeing table games and the poker room, as well as the race and sports book.
Station Casinos plucked Fort from its in-house operations-the Aliante director of operations has worked for Station for four years in various capacities at Palace Station, Green Valley Ranch and Santa Fe Station. Before joining the team at Station Casinos, Fort worked at MGM Grand, Harrah’s and Flamingo in Las Vegas, as well as Caesars in Atlantic City.
