Long To Leave Sol Casinos

Wendell Long, the last non-tribal-member chief executive officer of Pascua Yaqui Gaming Enterprises in Tucson, Arizona, announced a tribal member will take over the organization’s leadership by early June. Long said the Pascua Yaqui Tribal Council is considering five candidates.

“I’m confident any of the five tribal members can do this job,” said Long. “Now is the time for them to manage their own casino and resort.” Long said he will work with the new CEO through June 9.

Prior to joining Pascua Yaqui Gaming Enterprises, Long worked at Mohegan Sun and Foxwoods Resort Casino in Connecticut and was general manager at Treasure Island Casino in Minnesota. He began his gaming career in 1982 at the Playboy Hotel & Casino in Atlantic City, where he also worked for Trump Organization.

Pascua Yaqui Gaming Enterprises owns and operates two casinos, including its original Casino of the Sun.
