Larry Gregory has been named director of the Mississippi Casino Operators Association. Gregory recently retired as the executive director of the Mississippi Gaming Commission.
Gregory served on the state’s gaming commission for nearly 10 years, overseeing day-to-day operations and enforcing casino and bingo parlor rules. He was instrumental in Gulf Coast casinos’ recovery and reconstruction efforts following Hurricane Katrina in 2005. Gregory also helped draft regulations that moved coastal casinos up to 800 feet inland.
“Gregory’s experience and knowledge of our industry as well as his established working relationships throughout the industry will make this an easy transition,” said MCOA Chairwoman Tess Ingram. Gregory will start his new job in September.
