Where I have excelled throughout my career is in team building, and casino openings, having been involved in several due to my time as a vendor and a few as an operator.

“Here’s to many years of bringing the gaming and hospitality community together to share in the latest trends and keeping all of your audience ahead of the rest of the industry! With the rare opportunity provided by G&L at our yearly G&L Roundtable we are able to keep ahead of upcoming trends through open discussion between operators and vendors. Not only can we see the opportunities, but we can see the challenges that are not as unique to our individual companies as we might have thought originally, and we can address them in ways that we would have been blind to otherwise. Insight like that makes you a better leader, and that is something that G&L has given me and many of our colleagues in this industry! Meeting the vendors face to face is extremely valuable to me. It gives me time to talk to them before G2E gets a hold of them and really talk about what is important to us and to our industry.”
