Gary DiBartolomeo, named Foxwoods' chief marketing officer, was president of Caesars Atlantic City when the New Jersey Casino Control Commission stripped him of his "key employee" license in 2001.
The commission restored his
license four years later, noting his
"exemplary" behavior in the interim, according to published reports.
As a three-year member of the board of directors of the Council on Compulsive Gambling of New Jersey, DiBartolomeo has advocated for problem-gambling recovery programs, according to Donald Weinbaum, the council's executive director.
As chief marketing officer, DiBartolomeo will direct all aspects of Foxwoods' marketing, including casino services, promotions, special events, player development marketing, customer development, bus/junket marketing, advertising, database marketing, ecommerce and public relations.
Most recently, DiBartolomeo served as chief operations officer, gaming operations, at Valley Forge Casino Resort in King of Prussia, Pa. During his 20-year career, he also served in various management capacities in marketing, player development and other positions for Revel Entertainment, Harrah's/Caesars Entertainment, Bally's Casino Resort and Trump Taj Mahal, all in Atlantic City.
"Gary has worked tirelessly in the gaming industry implementing strategic plans to expand market share and increase customer loyalty in the face of increased competition," Scott Butera, Foxwoods' president and chief executive officer, said in a statement.
