VALLEY FORGE CASINO RESORT ANNOUNCES NEW PRESIDENT AND CHIEF EXECUTIVE OFFICER

KING OF PRUSSIA, PA (October 3, 2016) – Valley Forge Casino Resort today announced it has named Eric Pearson as its new president and chief executive officer, pending licensing approval.  Pearson most recently served as Vice President of Gaming and Revenue Enhancement at Foxwoods Resort Casino.

Pearson brings 13 years of gaming experience to his new role at Valley Forge Casino Resort.  At Foxwoods, he was responsible for the operational and financial oversight of Gaming Operations, Arcade Operations and Strategic & Loyalty Marketing. In April of this year, Eric oversaw the launch of Foxwoods’ redesigned social casino platform.  

Pearson’s background in hotel management, garnered in his role as Vice President of Gaming and Acting General Manager at Northern Quest Resort and Casino in Washington, was also key in his selection.

Throughout his career he has provided leadership expertise at several other major resort gaming operations throughout the country, including Gila River Casinos, Luxor, Excalibur, and Circus Circus Hotel Casino.

In a time of change and burgeoning competition in the market, the Valley Forge Casino Resort board of directors chose Pearson for his qualifications and experience which align with the forward-looking direction of the resort, as well as his contributions to growing market share at one of the Northeast’s premier casinos to ensure the casino resort remains a preferred gaming destination.

Pearson said he looks forward to working with Valley Forge Casino Resort’s management and employees to continue to identify ways to differentiate the gaming resort, drive loyalty and repeat visitors.

 “This is an incredible opportunity in a dynamic market,” Pearson said. “Valley Forge Casino Resort is well positioned for continued growth and I’m excited to bring my ideas and energy to collaborate with this creative, customer-centric team.”
