The Seneca Gaming Corp. will replace President and CEO Catherine Walker with Audrey Oswell. Seneca Gaming, based in Niagara Falls, runs the Seneca Niagara Casino in Niagara Falls, in addition to gambling facilities in Salamanca and Buffalo.
Oswell came on board with Seneca Gaming in 2013 as COO, with a healthy resume consisting of over 30 years of industry experience. Previously, she held roles as chief gaming officer at Atlantis, on Paradise Island in the Bahamas, in addition to senior management roles at Resorts and Caesars in Atlantic City, and the Cosmopolitan in Las Vegas.
Walker came in as COO of Seneca Gaming in 2008, and in 2009 was named the company’s acting principal executive officer. The following summer Walker became president and CEO. For now, Oswell will also remain COO and add the other responsibilities, said Phil Pantano, a Seneca Gaming spokesman.
