Penn National Gaming has made a number of changes to its executive management team to coincide with the transition of Jay Snowden to the role of chief executive next month.
Snowden will take up his new position on January 1, following the retirement of PNG’s current CEO Timothy Wilmott.
In preparation for the move, Penn National has promoted Todd George to executive vice president for operations and also changed Chris Rogers’ job title to senior vice president, chief strategy officer.
George has been with the operator since October 2012, first serving as vice president and general manager of Hollywood Casino in Lawrenceburg, Indiana, before going on to become vice president and general manager of Hollywood Casino St. Louis. In 2017, George was promoted to his current position as senior vice president of regional operations, overseeing nine properties in Penn National’s Midwest region.
In his new role, George will be responsible for the operator’s four senior vice presidents of regional operations, as well as marketing and information technology.
Rogers joined Penn National in August 2013 as vice president, deputy general counsel, serving in the role until February of this year when he was promoted to senior vice president, corporate development.
Moving into the newly created role of senior vice president, chief strategy officer, Rogers will lead the team in developing and pursuing strategic growth initiatives.
