Paul Pusateri has left his post as executive vice president of the Venetian resort in Las Vegas to become the head of the Palms Casino Resort. Pusateri was recently appointed president and general manager of the Palms.
Pusateri is replacing former president Jim Hughes, who resigned earlier this year. Hughes opened the resort in 2001.
“It is with great pleasure that I announce Paul Pusateri as the newest member of the Palms team,” owner George Maloof said in a statement. “Paul’s innovation, leadership and years of experience across the hotel and gaming industries will be a tremendous asset for the development and growth of the Palms brand. We’re thrilled to have
him on board.”
