Mohegan Gaming & Entertainment appoints new COO
July 27, 2020
Ray Pineault has been named Chief Operating Officer (COO) of Mohegan Gaming & Entertainment (MGE), pending regulatory approval.
"The entertainment industry has faced challenges this year due to the pandemic, but I am proud of the way our team members have stepped up and set MGE on a path of positive momentum, with strong performance across all properties since our reopenings," said Mario Kontomerkos, CEO and president of MGE. "From the beginning, it has been our mission to build the best executive team in the industry, and I believe we are on our way to achieving that status with a veteran like Ray at the helm."
After nearly 20 years of service to the Mohegan Tribe as president and general manager of the brand's flagship property, Mohegan Sun Connecticut, and most recently as regional president of MGE, Pineault brings a wealth of legal and business knowledge with him to the role of COO. In this role, Pineault will oversee MGE's regional presidents to ensure the operational success of each of the nine properties in MGE's portfolio in the US, Canada, and South Korea.
As COO, Ray will ensure that each of MGE's properties around the world meets or exceeds operational, employee engagement, guest service, cultural, strategic, and fiscal plans, while maintaining the highest standards of regulatory compliance. Pineault fills the COO position previously held by Michael Silberling who vacated the position in July.
