Muckleshoot Hires Granito

Conrad Granito Jr., a 25-year Native American gaming veteran, recently was hired as general manager at the Muckleshoot Casino, located on the Muckleshoot Tribe’s reservation near Seattle, Washington. Granito replaced interim General Manager Peter Valentine.

Granito began his gaming career in 1990 in bingo, followed by gaming operations with the Sycuan Band of Mission Indians. In 1993, he became general manager at the Pueblo of Isleta in New Mexico, where he managed the transition from bingo to a full casino in four years. He also spent 15 years in gaming working for tribes in Colorado, New Mexico and Louisiana.
