Board Member: James Conrad

In 1975, he started his career as an accountant for Cactus Pete Casino. James worked as the controller and then CEO of Peppermill Casino for 15 years and as CEO of a tribal casino for 3 years. Currently, James is the CEO of the Wind River Hotel & Casino as he has been for the last 10 years.

"If it walks like a duck, quacks like a duck, it's a duck," said Wind River Casino CEO James Conrad. "The bottom line is that these are slot machines."
The casino sits on Wyoming's Wind River Indian Reservation, and Conrad said more business at places like Wyoming Downs means less business at the reservation casinos. Idaho lawmakers legalized historical horse racing machines two years ago, but recently banned themafter a coalition of state tribes raised objections. Conrad said his casino is the largest employer on the reservation.
"We have 800 employees. Ninety percent are Native American," he said.

Jim Conrad, CEO of Wind River Casino, said construction is underway on a project that will culminate with over 30,000 square feet of total convention and meeting space and 17,500 square feet of gaming space by 2020.
Conrad said the casino's master plan has three phases with phase one being a 36,000-square-foot build, including a sit-down restaurant which seats 350 with five different menus, including Italian, Mexican, Mongolian Grill and barbecue.
"We have between 1,500 and 2,000 people that come into our facility between 6 p.m. on Friday night until 10 p.m.," Conrad said.
"We have always had a lack of adequate meeting space in our valley," Conrad said. "No conventions can seat 600-700 people and feed them, which is what we will be able to do with our new facility."
He said Riverton is more central to Wyoming than Rock Springs or Casper, meaning the space could attract a lot of business otherwise heading to those areas.
"When we get our [expansion] done we will have 11 different meeting rooms and will be able to handle about any size [convention] that wants to come to Wyoming," Conrad said.
He added that the expansion will add another 150 jobs (full and part-time) to his current group of 670 employees.

Wind River Casino CEO Jim Conrad hopes the hotel will ease the room shortage that plagues the area, so that tourists and casino patrons will have more options.
"There will be more of a guarantee to come any time and get a room, so that will be nice," Conrad said.
