Reed Cordish and Rob Norton

The Cordish Companies hit an exacta early this year when it opened two Pennsylvania casinos—a mini-casino outside of Pittsburgh, and a full casino resort in Philadelphia. Rob Norton has led Cordish Gaming since the company opened its fabulously successful casino in Maryland, outside of Baltimore, and has taken the lead, along with Cordish Companies Principal Reed Cordish, on the Pennsylvania casinos. They talk about the different markets, the online opportunities in the state and the future of the company. They sat down with GGB Editor Frank Legato during the grand opening of Live! Philadelphia earlier this month.
