Timothy Wilmott is retiring as CEO of Penn National Gaming and that has prompted several changes in the executive order of the company. Jay Snowden will obviously take over the role of the CEO from January 1 next year. However, the company has announced an array of changes for executive roles.
Todd George has been made the vice president for the operations in line with the CEO change. On the other hand, Chris Rogers has been made the Senior Vice President and Chief Strategy Officer.
George has been working with the Penn National Gaming since October of 2012. He served as the Vice President and General Manager of Hollywood Casino to start with, in Lawrenceburg, Indiana. He then went on and held the same position for Hollywood Casino at St. Louis. In 2017, George was given more responsibilities and became Senior Vice President for the Regional Operations. There were nine properties in National Midwest Region that he was overseeing in his role.
The new role of George would be a bit different. He would now head four Vice President of the Penn National Gaming and would also look after the Marketing and Information Technology section of the Operator.
Rogers also has been with Penn for a long time. He joined the operator in 2013 as the Vice President and Deputy General Counsel. The last February, he was made the Senior Vice President of Corporate Development.
In his new role, Rogers will lead the team for pursuing and developing the growth initiatives, reported the company.
It is going to be quite a change and it is believed that Jay Snowden is handling all these before he takes over as the CEO and a new era starts under him for Penn National Gaming.
