Ted Arneault, who for years directed the destinies of MTR Gaming Group Inc. (MNTG), the operators of casinos in West Virginia and Pennsylvania before leaving the company last year, has been named chairman of the board of Diamondhead Casino Corp. in Mississippi.
Arneault succeeds Deborah Vitale, who is stepping down.
In announcing the change, Vitale said, “Mr. Arneault knows the casino industry, knows the Gulf Coast market, recognizes the potential of this project and, of utmost importance, has successfully taken casinos from the ground up before.”
