Casino appoints general manager
A West Michigan casino has named its new general manager.
Eric Althaus will serve as general manager and VP for Gun Lake Casino in Wayland, effective immediately.
He replaces Brent Arena in the role.
Althaus will manage the daily operations of the casino, including internal and external guest service, oversight of the property financials and internal controls.
“It’s an exciting time for Gun Lake Casino,” Althaus said. “I’m proud to be entrusted with the task of leading the team to continued success.”
Althaus has 27 years of experience in the casino business, which includes management positions at casinos in Mississippi, Missouri and Louisiana.
He previously served Gun Lake Casino as the director of table games, assistant general manager and most recently, interim general manager.
“As a day-one team member, Eric has been key to the growth and development of the casino,” said Sal Semola, president and CEO, Gun Lake Casino. “This appointment to general manager is well-deserved.”
The new appointment follows the end of the casino’s management contract with MPM Enterprises, a joint venture owned by an affiliate of Station Casinos and a group of Mount Pleasant-based investors.
