Ray Pineault will oversee all day-to-day operations for MGE
Mohegan Gaming & Entertainment – the parent company of the Mohegan Sun casinos in Connecticut and Pennsylvania and developer of awe-inspiring integrated entertainment resorts (IER) worldwide - announced Thursday the appointment of Ray Pineault as its new president and chief executive officer, effective immediately.
Ray Pineault had been interim CEO since March 31, 2021, and was previously president and general manager of Mohegan Sun Connecticut - MGE’s flagship property - and chief operating Officer of MGE, during 20 years of service to the tribe.
Pineault will oversee all day-to-day operations for MGE, including ongoing brand growth and continuing to ensure that MGE delivers unmatched personalized services and memorable guest experiences.
Chairman of the Mohegan Tribe and MGE Management Board, James Gessner, Jr., stated “I want to congratulate fellow tribal member Ray Pineault as he assumes the role of president and chief executive officer for Mohegan Gaming & Entertainment”.
“We are tremendously lucky to have someone of Ray’s caliber, experience, and intellect taking on this role. His grasp of our organization and all its moving parts across nine worldwide properties is unmatched. Having someone with these abilities come from within our tribal membership makes this day all the more meaningful. Today is a proud day for the Mohegan Nation.” Gessner concluded.
Pineault expressed, “I have dedicated my career to ensuring the success of Mohegan Gaming & Entertainment, and I look forward to the immense growth, development, and accomplishments we will achieve in this next chapter together. I am grateful to the Mohegan Tribe for this opportunity and will work tirelessly to uphold our values and traditions, both here in the United States and in the communities around the world in which we operate.”
In October 2020, the U.S. tribal casino operator Mohegan Gaming & Entertainment and its partner, the Greek construction giant, Gek Terna have offered 150 million euros ($176 million) for the 30-year casino licence to build and operate a Greek integrated casino resort in Athens, as was reported by SiGMA News.
In late January, Mohegan partnered with Oshidori International Development Godogaisha, a subsidiary of Hong Kong-listed Oshidori International Holdings, for Japan’s Nagasaki prefecture’s tilt to build an IR resort in the city of Sasebo, on the Kyushu Island, according to Gambling News.
