Hard Rock is a well-known name in the casino space, and the operator is tidying up to boost its performance. The casino recently welcomed Ray Stefanelli, a former Borgata executive, to its team at Hard Rock Hotel and Casino Atlantic City. Ray will act as the Vice President for online gaming.
The casino made an official statement on Monday stating that Ray will overview sports marketing and online casino strategies. Moreover, he will also monitor risk, payments, and customer service for the casino.
Joe Lupo, property president for Hard Rock casino, shared his opinion on the situation. Joe said that the team is delighted to welcome a seasoned professional with 30 years of experience like Ray to the family. In addition, Joe shows confidence in Ray’s capability to boost Hard Rock’s online gaming operations in the New Jersey market.
Ray will also be pivotal in developing and expanding Hard Rock’s current and upcoming customer product. The recently appointed VP will work closely with the Hard Rock digital team to achieve the goals.
Ray’s LinkedIn profile says that the veteran served as the director of poker and operations at BetMGM. Before that, Ray also acted as the executive director of Casino Product and Online Gaming Poker at Borgata.
His contribution to the Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa is immeasurable, and Hard Rock plans to render similar results with his appointment. Ray is a New Jersey native and completed his graduation from Lynchburg College, New Jersey. The professional has served under multiple regional gaming positions. It is not Ray’s first time working with Hard Rock as the veteran previously worked as the director of Seminole Gaming’s poker marketing back in 2013.
The year has already treated Hard Rock Hotel and Casino well, and with Ray joining their team, the casino will enjoy an even more profitable year.
