Mohegan Sun CEO Headlines April Economic Summit
Mohegan Sun Gaming and Entertainment president and CEO Ray Pineault is the keynote speaker for CBIA’s April 21 2022 Connecticut Economic Update conference in Trumbull.
Pineault will discuss the company’s pandemic rebound, how it’s addressing the labor shortage crisis, and the growth opportunities from legal sports wagering and other initiatives.
A Mohegan tribal member, Pineault took over as interim CEO in 2021 after four years as general manager of the casino.
“We look forward to the growth and expansion of sports wagering in Connecticut,” Pineault told CBIA’s BizCast recently.
“It’s an exciting time to bring gaming to Connecticut in this century and to be in the same realm as our competitors like New Jersey who have had sports betting and iGaming for years.”
