New Boss at the Palms

Station Casinos has named Anthony Faranca vice president and general manager of its recently acquired Palms Casino Resort in Las Vegas.

Faranca, who also heads the Executive Committee of the 1,200-room off-Strip casino, will be responsible for all day-to-day operations, including gaming, marketing, hotel and resort operations, food and beverage and finance.

He joined the company in January from Parx Casino in Bensalem, Pennsylvania, where he served as general manager. Prior to that, he spent nine years with Parx parent Greenwood Racing.

A mechanical engineer by training, the Philadelphia native began his gaming career as a customer service manager for Harrah’s Atlantic City and Showboat Atlantic City and rose through the Caesars Entertainment ranks to become regional vice president of casino marketing for all four Caesars Atlantic City properties.
