Interview with Bruce Boszum, Chairman, Mohegan Tribe

This week, we feature an interview with Bruce "Two Dogs" Boszum, the chairman of Mohegan Tribe, on the future direction of the tribe with the advent of the opening of the new facility at Pocono Downs and expansion in Connecticut. Boszum took charge as leader of the Mohegans two years ago and has demonstrated a respect for the past with a vision for the future. His understanding of gaming and the development of the tribal gaming authority is unquestioned. Leading off the podcast this week are some questions and answers from Mitchell Etess, the president of the tribal gaming authority. Etess explains what the Mohegan Sun at Pocono Downs means to his company. Bobby Soper, the president and CEO of the Mohegan Sun at Pocono Downs, talks about how the project was designed immediately after the facility opened. And finally, Bruce Boszum spoke with Global Gaming Business Publisher Roger Gros at G2E Asia in Macau in June about the Mohegan Sun at Pocono Downs and other tribal projects.
