We understand and support his decision to step down and are grateful for his assistance in positioning the commission and its staff for future growth.”

Schuetz has held a wide variety of casino industry positions, from blackjack and dice dealer to executive vice president, president and chief executive officer at casino resorts in several jurisdictions.
