Wolf Resigns From Odawa Casino

David Wolf recently resigned as general manager at Odawa Casino in Petoskey, Michigan, operated by the Little Traverse Bay Bands of Odawa Indians. A spokesperson for the casino said Wolf will join Jumers, an Illinois gaming operation across the river from Davenport, Iowa. Meanwhile, Roger Borton, Odawa’s director of finance since 2010, has been named interim general manager until a new GM is hired.

Wolf joined Odawa as general manager in 2010. In the past four years, he managed numerous upgrades at the hotel, including a two-year renovation and switching to solar energy. In addition, he directed improvements at the property’s restaurants and parking facilities, plus a website redesign. In addition, during Wolf’s tenure the casino refinanced its long-term debt and the Odawa tribal government was able to expand programs and services as a result of casino revenues.
