Interview with Curtis Bashaw, Partner, Bashaw-Barr Inc.

This week, the Global Gaming Business Podcast features an interview with Curtis Bashaw, a partner in Bashaw-Barr Inc., which is planning a massive new casino project in Atlantic City. As executive director of the New Jersey Casino Reinvestment Development Authority, Bashaw became an advocate, not only of Atlantic City, but of the entire Jersey Shore. His experience with building and renovating hotels in Cape May, just south of Atlantic City, enforced the notion that Atlantic City is only the main attraction on the extended Jersey Shore. With a new "boutique" hotel in Atlantic City scheduled to open this month, and plans for a $2 billion project at the western end of the Boardwalk, Bashaw is a major player in Atlantic City these days. He spoke with Global Gaming Business Editor Frank Legato at his offices in May.
