New COO at Station Casinos

Longtime Station Casinos executive Joe Hasson has resigned as chief operating officer of the Las Vegas-based operator, and Station has chosen another company veteran, Robert Finch, to replace him.

Station parent, publicly traded Red Rock Resorts, reported the change but did not provide details, except to say that Hasson, whose involvement with Station goes back to 2003, will continue to serve in a consulting role over the next 12 months.

In his time with Station he served as general manager of several casinos in the Las Vegas area, including Green Valley Ranch, where he starred in the reality TV series American Casino, before joining Penn National Gaming for a year. He returned to Station in 2012 to open and manage Graton Resort & Casino, an Indian-owned operation in Northern California.

Finch first joined Station Casinos in 1983. He left to work elsewhere in the industry for several years and returned in 1996. He has since served in a variety of senior operating roles, most recently as general manager of Green Valley Ranch Resort in the Las Vegas suburb of Henderson and as senior vice president of Native American operations.
