Mazer Shifts from Vegas to AC

The Linq will open without one of the men who saw it rise. Rick Mazer, president and general manager of Harrah’s, the Flamingo, the Quad and the Gansevoort on the Las Vegas Strip, has been assigned to Harrah’s Resort in Atlantic City, just months before the Linq will debut in the middle of his four properties. Mazer, who spent many years leading Harrah’s Entertainment properties in mid-America, now returns to the site where his career began. Mazer was an original dealer at Caesars Atlantic City back in 1979.

Mazer will not stand still, however. He’ll be in charge of construction of a $128 million convention center at Harrah’s, as well as take part in the development of the prospective Caesars property at Suffolk Downs racetrack in Boston.

Mazer’s Atlantic City debut will be delayed a month, however, as the Casino Control Commission refused to rule on his license application last month, deeming it “incomplete.”

Eileen Moore, currently the president of Caesars Entertainment’s Mid-North Division, which includes the properties in southern Indiana and Illinois, will take over as president and GM of the Flamingo, the Quad and the Gansevoort, while Caesars Palace President Gary Selesner will oversee operations at Harrah’s. Jon Gray continues as general manger of the Linq.
