Atlantic City casino veteran Mark Giannantonio has been appointed the new president and chief executive officer of Resorts Casino Hotel. Giannantonio, the former president of Tropicana Casino and Resort, takes on the duties of Gary Van Hettinga, president of Mohegan Gaming Advisors, who will now split his time between Atlantic City and other Mohegan casinos in Connecticut and Pennsylvania.

In addition, Mark Sachais will take on the role of vice president of hotel operations for Resorts. Sachais is a former top executive at Trump Marina and Trump Plaza in Atlantic City.
