San Manuel Band Names Gill CEO

San Manuel Band Names Gill CEO

The San Manuel Band of Mission Indians, which operates San Manuel Casino in Southern California, has named Loren Gill its new CEO. He has been the casino’s general manager since 2015.

Gill has led the casino during a long period of expansion. He was also in charge of the Yaamava’ expansion project, which is building the casino’s first hotel, an entertainment venue, new dining, retail and convention space. That project broke ground last summer.

San Manuel Chairman Lynn Valbuena praised Gill, saying that he “exemplifies the tribe’s vision, mission and values, and is committed to further unifying San Manuel across the enterprise.” She added, “While his career in the gaming industry speaks to his expertise in casino management, it is his passion for and commitment to the tribe that make him the right person to lead our Tribal Government Operations and casino enterprises.”

Moving up to Gill’s old job as GM will be Peter Arcero, who has been chief operating officer since last August. Kenji Hall has been promoted to COO.
