Palms GM Jon Gray: ‘Time to Go’

Palms Casino Resort General Manager Jon Gray, who oversaw a massively expensive, and just-completed redevelopment of the off-Strip casino hotel, has resigned.

Operating company Station Casinos, a subsidiary of publicly traded Red Rock Resorts, issued a statement on Gray’s departure, saying, “With the third and final phase of the redevelopment project having been completed in late September, Jon has elected to move on to the next chapter of his career.”

It added that “Jon will be greatly missed at the Palms. We are extremely grateful for his many valuable contributions to the property over the years and wish him the very best of success as he proceeds to his next challenge.”

Gray said, “It was time to go. It was time to move on. I was brought on to reposition the Palms and help rebuild it. I’m proud of what we have done with the project and now I am ready to move forward.”

Kord Nichols, Station’s senior vice president of operations, was appointed to fill in until a replacement is named.
