Del Lago Resort and Casino in New York state in the United States, has appointed Mark Juliano, a former executive of Marina Bay Sands in Singapore, as its general manager. Del Lago issued a statement on Sunday saying he would begin work on July 9. The Business Journal News Network reports that regulators have yet to give permission for the appointment.
Mr Juliano will ensure the casino resort operates efficiently, oversee staffing and manage the growth of the business, according to the announcement by his new employer.
Between 2011 and 2014, Mr Juliano was senior vice president and chief casino officer of Singapore casino resort, Marina Bay Sands, developed by U.S.-based Las Vegas Sands Corp. Mr Juliano has also been in management at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas, Nevada; and at Trump Entertainment Resorts in Atlantic City, New Jersey. Most recently he was president of Sands Bethlehem, a casino resort in Pennsylvania. Las Vegas Sands said in March it was selling that property. The U.S. group also operates casinos in Macau.
Del Lago’s chief operating officer Aaron Gomes was quoted by the news outlet as saying of the appointee: “Mark’s pedigree in the resort and casino industry, coupled with his role in economic development initiatives in and around New Jersey, brings the ideal mix of casino and resort operation and community experience.”
Mr Juliano replaces Jeff Babinski, who has left Del Lago to become vice president and general manager of the Kansas Star Casino in Wichita, Kansas, said the Business Journal News Network.
While Mr Juliano was at Sands Bethlehem, the property installed in 2016 what gaming equipment supplier International Game Technology Plc described at the time as the “largest live electronic table game installation in the United States”. It included 150 “Dynasty” electronic table game cabinets in a stadium format, featuring live roulette and baccarat games. It included four live dealing tables, connected to game terminals, enabling players to wager on multiple games at the same time.
