On Thursday the Red Hawk Casino, which is located near Placerville, California and is scheduled to open in December, announced the appointment of two new gaming executives.

Plummer has managed slots, table games, VIP and loyalty programs for several casinos, both domestically and internationally for over 10 years. Plummer will be responsible for the new casino’s more than 2,000 slot machines.

"Peter and Corey will ensure the best possible gaming experience for our guests," said Peter Fordham, General Manager of Red Hawk Casino. "Their successful track record of managing gaming operations at several casinos will help establish Red Hawk Casino as the premier gaming destination in Northern California when it opens later this year.

"At Red Hawk Casino, our goal is to provide our guests with an unparalleled level of service," said Nairn. "We have created an environment that encourages our staff to have fun with our guests in order to provide the most entertaining gaming experience."

Plummer was also thrilled to work for the new casino which is owned by the Shingle Springs Tribal Gaming Authority, an instrumentality of the Shingle Springs Band of Miwok Indians.
