Griffin Retires as Trump Entertainment Resorts CEO

Bob Griffin has retired as CEO of Trump Entertainments Resorts, saying the move comes more than a year after he originally planned.

Griffin told the Associated Press he is retiring to Colorado, where his family moved six months ago.

Griffin stayed to oversee the company’s fourth bankruptcy and the acquisition of its lone casino, the Trump Taj Mahal, by billionaire Carl Icahn.

That transfer has been delayed while waiting for a court ruling on whether the company will have to restore health benefits to union workers at Taj Mahal. A bankruptcy court ruled the company could cut the benefits, but Atlantic City’s main casino union has appealed that ruling. That has set off a bitter fight between the union, Icahn and Trump Entertainment.

Griffin was hired in September 2010 to succeed Mark Juliano as CEO of the company. Griffin oversaw the shutdown of Atlantic City’s Trump Plaza in 2014 and then the bankruptcy proceeding.
