Penn Names new Regional Operations VP

Penn National Gaming last month announced the appointment of Albert T.

Britton as senior vice president of regional operations.

Britton was most recently general manager of Penn’s Hollywood Casino at Charles Town Races in West Virginia, where he has been for 12 years.

Following a planned realignment of the company’s reporting structure, Britton will be one of three such regional managers, responsible for the Midwest Region, which includes Missouri, Illinois, Kansas and Indiana. He will report directly to COO Jay Snowden.

Britton is a 35-year veteran of gaming. He began at the Claridge Casino Hotel in Atlantic City and held a variety of management positions there until he rose to be president and COO.
