Interview with Gary Selesner, President, Caesars Palace

This week, the Global Gaming Business Podcast features an interview with Gary Selesner, the president of Caesars Palace in Las Vegas on the completed and ongoing expansion and renovation at the legendary Strip resort. Gary Selesner has been president of Caesars Palace for two years. His vast experience in the gaming industry has culminated in his leadership of the iconic Las Vegas property. He explains how Harrah's Entertainment is planning to maintain the exclusive status of Caesars Palace in the face of growing competition for the high-end market. He also puts to rest the impression that Harrah's would not continue to pursue that market. Selesner spoke with Global Gaming Business Publisher Roger Gros from his offices in Caesars Palace in September.
