Fuetsch Named To Nevada Commission

Nevada Governor Brian Sandoval appointed Wells Fargo Senior Vice President Debbie Fuetsch to the Nevada Gaming Commission.

If approved, Fuetsch would fill a vacancy created when Michonne Ascuaga recently resigned after a federal money laundering investigation into the Nugget Casino Resort in Sparks was revealed.

Ascuaga’s father, John Ascuaga, became the casino’s general manager when he bought it in 1960, and her family continued to own and operate it until selling it to Global Gaming and Hospitality in 2013. Ascuaga said the federal investigation did not involve her or her family, but she resigned from the commission to avoid a potential conflict of interest.

Fuetsch manages Wells Fargo Bank’s commercial portfolio, and Sandoval said her experience with banking compliance laws will prove beneficial for the commission.

Fuetsch will serve a one-year term, from May 1 through April 27, 2017.

Sandoval also re-appointed Dr. Tony Alamo to another four-year term as the commission’s chairman.
