Report: Entertainment Executives Depart from Caesars Amid Changes

Caesars Entertainment, the second-largest gaming and entertainment operator on the Las Vegas Strip, has reportedly parted ways with up to ten of its entertainment executives, according to a recent report by the Las Vegas Review-Journal. At the time of writing, Caesars has not publicly disclosed any details on the topic.

The news about the departure of these high-ranking entertainment executives comes after the leave of Jason Gastwirth, Caesars’ president of entertainment, back in December. Gastwirth confirmed his plans to step down from the company, ending his 13-year tenure.

Sources close to the matter have suggested that executives such as Amy Naples, Jessica Tindor, and Chris Yancey, as well as Paul Shlisky, Mike Hodin, and Mark Weinstein, may have been among those who parted ways with Caesars.

The departure of these entertainment executives coincided with the start of Amy Graca’s tenure as senior vice president of entertainment at Caesars on January 2. However, the company has not confirmed any reasons for the reshuffle within its entertainment division.

Caesars also announced its plans to release its fourth-quarter and full-year results for 2023 on February 20, 2024, last week.

In addition to the executive changes, Caesars Digital recently formed a partnership with Hacksaw Gaming, allowing it to expand its presence in the North American market. This partnership will enable Hacksaw Gaming to reach new customers through Caesars Digital, as its portfolio of iGaming content will be integrated into Caesars Sportsbook and Casino, as well as Caesars Palace Online Casino, which operate in the regulated online gambling market in Ontario, Canada.

Caesars Entertainment operates popular casino resorts on the Las Vegas Strip, including Caesars Palace, Paris Las Vegas Hotel & Casino, and The LINQ Hotel + Experience, among others.
