Hughes Named to Lead Fremont Street Experience

Longtime Las Vegas casino executive Patrick Hughes has been named to lead the Fremont Street Experience, the company that operates the entertainment center that spans the major Downtown Las Vegas thoroughfare. He replaces Jeff Victor, who left the company last year.

Hughes, a native of Ireland, has been working in Las Vegas for many years, including stops at Boulder Station, New York-New York and the Resort at Summerlin, now the JW Marriott. Most recently, Hughes was the general manager of the Cannery Hotel Casino in North Las Vegas for the last four years.

The Fremont Street Experience is a company with a board representing eight Downtown casinos: Binion’s, the California Hotel, the D Las Vegas, Four Queens, Fremont, Golden Gate, Golden Nugget and Main Street Station.
