Guyot takes over as Foxwoods CEO on permanent basis

| By Daniel O'Boyle
Jason Guyot will take over as president and chief executive of Foxwoods Resort Casino in Connecticut, operated by the Mashantucket Pequot Tribal Nation, on a full time basis, after serving as interim chief executive since April 2020.

Guyot, who now becomes the first member of the Mashantucket Pequot Tribal Nation to serve as Foxwoods chief executive, first took over in an interim capacity when John J. James stepped down last year after nine months in charge.
