Tropicana Evansville today announced the appointment of casino executive, Jason Gregorec, to general manager of its popular riverfront gaming and entertainment complex.

Gregorec began his gaming career as a gaming host at Harrah’s Joliet before climbing the executive ladder at Majestic Star Casinos and Hotel in Gary, Indiana with notable titles such as vice president of table games and VIP services. He then made the leap to the Vegas gaming market, serving most recently as Station Casinos’ vice president/assistant general manager of the Green Valley Ranch resort.
