US-tribal casino operator Mohegan Gaming & Entertainment (MGE) has announced the hiring of a new chief financial officer, Drew Kelley, taking the position at the start of June.
The appointment of Kelley fills a position that has been left vacant since October when Mario Kontomerkos was promoted to CEO.
According to a company SEC filing, Kelly was previously the CFO and interim CEO of ARC Group Worldwide Inc., a publicly traded manufacturer of precision metallurgic products and advanced 3D printing. Before that, he spent more than a decade working in investment banking and equity research with Wall Street firms, including Merrill Lynch & Co.; Bear, Stearns & Co. Inc. and Jefferies LLC.
MGE owns and operates its flagship casino, Mohegan Sun in Wilkes-Barre, Pa, and manages a number of casino resorts throughout the U.S. It is also the operator of project Inspire, a first-of-its-kind, multi-billion dollar integrated resort and casino project to be built at Incheon International Airport in South Korea.
The company has also been eyeing opportunities to build an integrated casino resort in Japan, having recently participated at the Japan Gaming Congress.
