Terry Glebocki

Chief Executive Officer, Ocean Casino Hotel

Terry Glebocki

When Terry Glebocki arrived at Ocean she found a series of owners and senior management that has failed to utilize the property to its full potential. When she was first appointed interim CEO and later permanent CEO, she began to turn the property around by a series of physical changes and innovative marketing campaigns. Then the pandemic hit. Turns out it was a bump in the road because once Ocean reopened, it has continued to increase revenue and market share. She explains how the property navigated the pandemic and how it is performing now with all restrictions removed. She spoke with GGB Publisher Roger Gros for the cover story of the August issue at Ocean in June.

Roger Gros is publisher of Global Gaming Business, the industry's leading gaming trade publication, and all its related publications. Prior to joining Global Gaming Business, Gros was president of Inlet Communications, an independent consulting firm. He was vice president of Casino Journal Publishing Group from 1984-2000, and held virtually every editorial title during his tenure. Gros was editor of Casino Journal, the National Gaming Summary and the Atlantic City Insider, and was the founding editor of Casino Player magazine. He was a co-founder of the American Gaming Summit and the Southern Gaming Summit conferences and trade shows. He is the author of the best-selling book, How to Win at Casino Gambling (Carlton Books, 1995), now in its fourth edition. Gros was named "Businessman of the Year" for 1998 by the Greater Atlantic City Chamber of Commerce, and received the Lifetime Achievement Award from the American Gaming Association in 2012.
