Travis Lunn

Travis Lunn has climbed the ladder at MGM Resorts for the past several years after stops at Mirage Resorts, Las Vegas Sands and Hard Rock Las Vegas. Most recently, Lunn was general manager of MGM Grand in Las Vegas and was able to get exposure to the many varied businesses that exist at an integrated resort. At Beau Rivage, Lunn plans to put into action his understanding of non-gaming amenities and the hotel operations. He talks about the people who have influenced his career and why he believes MGM Resorts is poised to become the most influential casino company in the industry. He spoke with GGB Publisher Roger Gros from his offices at the Beau Rivage in December.

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.
