Martin Steps Down From Mississippi Gaming Group

The Mississippi Casino Operators Association recently announced that after 17 years, Beverly Martin has left her position as executive director of the group. Kimberly Fritz, a 25-year veteran of the gaming industry in both Mississippi and Atlantic City, was appointed interim executive director.

Martin was MCOA’s first executive director after it was formed when the Coast Casino Operators Association and the Mississippi Gaming Association merged, and was the co-founder of the Southern Gaming Summit, today one of the gaming industry’s major trade shows.

“The entire gaming industry and its 30,000 employees owe Beverly a debt of gratitude for her tireless work and devotion on behalf of our industry. We wish her all the best in her future endeavors,” said MCOA Chairwoman Tess Ingram, general manager of the Lighthouse Point Casino in Greenville.
