Navajo Gaming CEO Under Attack

Navajo Gaming CEO Under Attack

The new chief executive officer of the Navajo Nation Gaming Enterprise, Brian Parrish, has come under attack for his involvement in a 2002 contest-rigging incident at the Venetian in Las Vegas.

Quincy Natay, chairman of the Enterprise, released a statement supporting Parrish. “We believe Mr. Parrish possesses all the necessary gaming management experience and leadership qualities to effectively lead Navajo Gaming into the future,” he wrote.

Parrish was promoted from chief operating officer to the job in September after former CEO Derrick Watchman left for undisclosed reasons.

Parrish was fired from the Venetian for the incident, which did not cause him to gain anything personally. The state gaming authority declined to act against him.
