Kenji Hall Named GM at Yaamava’

The San Manuel Entertainment Authority has named Kenji Hall the new general manager at Yaamava’ Resort & Casino at San Manuel, succeeding Peter Arceo, who was selected as chief gaming officer for the San Manuel Band of Mission Indians in May.

Hall will lead the strategic execution and performance of daily gaming and hospitality operations and continue in his successful role as a leader of workplace culture at the award-winning resort and casino.

Hall joined San Manuel Casino in 2017 as chief operating officer-hospitality, where he led the complete renovation of the tribe’s Bear Springs Hotel in San Bernardino, California. Hall also brought revenue growth to San Manuel Casino with the opening of new and phenomenally successful food and beverage outlets.

Later, Hall was named chief operating officer-casino, where he was responsible for leading the expansion of gaming operations and played an instrumental role in the rebranding and opening of Yaamava’.

“Kenji’s expertise in hotel, food and beverage, marketing and gaming operations make him ideally qualified for leading the next generation of service excellence at Yaamava’,” said Peter Arceo, chief gaming officer of the tribe.

“I am grateful for this opportunity and excited to continue the Yaamava’ legacy as a best-in-class resort and casino,” said Hall.
