Four Winds Finds Freedman

The Pokagon Band of Potawatomi Indians has appointed a successor for its Four Winds Casinos chief operating officer, and it didn’t have to look far. Frank Freedman, who previously served as assistant general manager of Four Winds Buffalo and general manager of Four Winds Hartford and Four Winds Dowagiac, will succeed Matt Harkness, who is leaving to pursue other interests.

“Matt Harkness and Frank Freedman have played very important roles in the development, growth and success of our Four Winds Casinos,” said John P. Warren, chairman of the Pokagon Band of Potawatomi Indians. “On behalf of the Tribal Council, Gaming Authority and all Pokagon citizens, we sincerely thank Matt for his hard work, dedication and leadership over the past eight years, and we wish him all the best in his future endeavors. He will truly be missed.”

Four Winds Casinos received 56 industry and regional awards for its gaming, hotel, restaurants and other amenities in 2014.
