San Manuel CEO Departs

Loren Gill, chief executive officer for San Manuel Band of Mission Indians, has left his position. The band operates the San Manuel Casino in San Bernardino County, Southern California.

No reason was given for Gill’s departure. However, San Manuel Tribal Chairman Ken Ramirez issued this statement: “Loren has developed what we believe is one of the strongest teams in the country, has led our economy to record growth, and has given us a pathway for future diversification.” He added, “He is a consummate builder and creator, and we are grateful for his contributions over the past five years.”

The current CFO, Laurens Vosloo, will serve as interim CEO.

Gill was named CEO in 2019 after serving for three years as general manager of the San Manuel Casino.

Ramirez recently replaced former chairwoman Lyn Valbuena, who had led the tribe since 2012.
