Hasson Leaves Station, Joins Penn

Station Casino veteran Joe Hasson is leaving the company to become general manager of Penn National Gaming’s Hollywood Casino in Lawrenceburg, Indiana.

Hasson most recently served as the general manager of Sunset Station. He spent eight years with the company and became known to a national television audience through Discovery Channel’s American Casino when he was general manager of Green Valley Ranch Resort.

Hasson also helped open Aliante Station for the company.

Prior to joining Station, he spent 22 years with Harrah’s Entertainment.

“Joe brings strong management experience and extensive industry knowledge to Penn National,” said Penn National Senior Vice President Regional Operations John Finamore in a statement. Finamore called Hasson “the ideal person to lead Hollywood Casino Lawrenceburg.”
