Mount Airy Names New GM

Pennsylvania’s Mount Airy Casino Resort announced the resignation of its first CEO, George Toth, and the hiring of veteran casino executive John Culetsu as the new executive vice president and general manager.

Toth stepped down Friday, August 5, to “pursue other career opportunities,” according to the casino. Owner and Managing Trustee Lisa DeNaples thanked Toth for his efforts in guiding the resort through its opening phase and the introduction of table games. “George Toth brought a great deal of experience and knowledge of the gaming industry into his role as CEO,” DeNaples said. “We thank him for leading us through the highly successful transformation of Mount Airy Casino Resort and we wish him continued success.”

Culetsu, who took the helm last week, was most recently general manager of the Palms Casino Resort in Las Vegas. He managed the Crowne Plaza Hotel for 20 years, and served in various marketing and management positions at hotels and casinos, including Resorts International in Atlantic City.

“We are thrilled to welcome John Culetsu in a leadership position to Mount Airy Casino Resort,” DeNaples said. “He brings decades of experience in managing blue-chip properties and has mastered the fine art of creating the perfect customer experience for each guest. He will take us to the next level as a destination and ensure our position as the ultimate casino resort on the East Coast.”
