Atlantic City is taking over as the controller of operations for the gaming industry, while Las Vegas will keep its niche as the capital of gambling.
Park Place Entertainment Corp. named Wallace Barr, a veteran of Atlantic City for 23 years, as its chief operating officer. Mark Brown was named chief operating officer for Trump Hotels & Casino Resorts.
Jack Gallaway was named chief operating officer of Isle of Capri Casino, formerly the president of Tropicana Casino & Resort.
These corporate officers have put in together a total of 66 years of Atlantic City experience compared to 5 years in Vegas.
Because of the competitiveness of Atlantic City, these executives are being pushed into thinking sharper and making quicker moves.
