Resorts Atlantic City was on the verge of closing several years ago until Morris Bailey bought the property for $30 million. After the death of Dennis Gomes, his first CEO, Bailey brought in Mohegan Gaming & Entertainment to run the property. Mohegan appointed long-time Atlantic City executive Mark Giannantonio as president and CEO. In addition to more meeting space, renovated hotel rooms and casino space, and more F&B outlets, Giannantonio has guided the casino through the openings of two nearby casinos. He spoke with GGB Publisher Roger Gros at his offices at Resorts Atlantic City in July.
