The Tsuut’ina Nation has a new CEO for its Grey Eagle Resort & Casino, appointing Tyrone Waite into the role.
Waite joins the Tsuut’ina Nation team as the resort goes through its next stage of growth, bringing with him over 20 years of gaming experience.
Commenting on his new role, Waite said: “I’m looking forward to firmly establishing Grey Eagle as a premier entertainment destination.
“It’s exciting to be working with the Tsuut’ina community, to develop the staff and to grow the business to ensure the ongoing success of the Nation for decades to come.”
Grey Eagle Resort & Casino has been open since 2007 and is located on the Tsuut’ina Nation (Treaty 7) at the foot of the Canadian Rockies, bordering the city of Calgary.
At over 84,000 square feet in size, the casino features over 1,000 slot machines, 40 gaming tables, and six poker tables, alongside a bingo hall, a four-star hotel and conference centre, and a 2,500-seat event centre.
Before joining Grey Eagle Resort & Casino, Waite worked as a General Manager for both One Toronto Gaming in Pickering, Ontario, and Cowboys Casino in Calgary. He has also held the role of General Manager and Vice President of Hospitality Operations at Great Canadian Entertainment.
“We are confident that with the addition of Mr Waite, we will be well positioned to navigate the ever-evolving economic and regulatory landscape of the Gaming industry,” stated Grey Eagle Gaming & Hospitality Board Chair Brent Dodginghorse.
“Over the coming months, we are excited to transition the Resort Operations to Mr Waite and execute our long-term growth strategy while continuing to make the Grey Eagle Resort & Casino a premier stay-and-play destination in Alberta.
“With the Tsuut’ina-owned Taza Park Real Estate Development underway, visitors will be able to shop, eat and play on our lands. We are proud to welcome visitors to our Resort on the beautiful Tsuut’ina Nation and share a piece of our culture with every visit.”
