Bill Sherlock, the casino executive who left the Foxwoods Resort Casino in Connecticut after guiding the facility to a position of world recognition, has been called back to fill a sudden vacancy.

Michael Speller, who was appointed president of the facility in December, 2008, submitted his resignation last week to “pursue other career opportunities.”

Immediately, the Mashantucket Pequot Tribal Council, owners of the casino, appointed Sherlock interim president while it begins a search for a full-time executive.

Sherlock, who earned his casino stripes under Terry Lanni at Caesars Palace and later guided the construction and operation of New York—New York Hotel/Casino for MGM Grand, also serves as a chairman of Nevada Gold and Casinos Inc. (UWN), a position he will retain while heading the Foxwoods property.
