Greektown Appoints GM

Detroit’s Greektown Casino-Hotel anonounced that Christopher Colwell, a senior vice president of marketing firm The Fine Point Group, has been named the property’s general manager, subject to regulatory approvals.

Colwell is one of a group of industry veterans from Fine Point Group recently hired by the property. He will oversee all operating departments.

“Christopher Colwell possesses vast experience in the gaming industry, having held senior roles on both sides of the proverbial fence-as an operating executive over gaming operations, and a senior leader with a major slot and systems provider,” said Fine Point Group Managing Director Randall A. Fine. “He understands the issues the property is facing, and more importantly, understands the opportunities the property can take advantage of. I have no doubt that Chris is the right person for this position and that we will see outstanding results in the future as a consequence of his appointment.”

During his tenure with Fine Point Group, Colwell has led a major slot profit optimization program for a billion-dollar tribal gaming company and developed a new table games business for a major technology supplier startup. Prior to joining the marketing firm, he was director of development for Station Casinos, Inc.
