Mohegan Promotes Ray Pineault to COO

Mohegan Sun President and General Manager Ray Pineault has been promoted to Mohegan Gaming & Entertainment’s (MGE) chief operating officer. He will replace Michael Silberling, who left the job in July.

Pineault started at Mohegan Sun eight months ago, assuming the title regional president in charge of Mohegan Sun in Connecticut, Mohegan Sun Pocono in Pennsylvania and Paragon Casino Resort in Louisiana. Now he will oversee all MGE properties in the U.K. and Canada, as well as the Inspire project, now in development in Incheon, South Korea. He will also oversee MGE’s regional presidents.

Mohegan President and CEO Mario Kontomerkos praised Pineault, saying, “From the beginning, it has been our mission to build the best executive team in the industry, and I believe we are on our way to achieving that status with a veteran like Ray at the helm.”

Pineault, a tribal member, has been in the gaming business with the tribe for nearly two decades. Before serving as president and general manager of Mohegan Sun, he was senior staff attorney, managing legal issues pertaining to commercial transactions.
