Dennis Gomes and the Maryland-based Cordish Company have mutually agreed to end their partnership as they seek to move in different directions with casino-related developments.

Gomes said he is checking out opportunities in all parts of the country and has positioned Dennis Gomes Inc., to handle all aspects of projects such as the new racino near Indianapolis with its 2,000 slots that he developed for Cordish.

"We can do it all," he said, "from financing to security and management."

Cordish officials could not be reached for comment but it is likely they will focus on developments in Maryland for the near future.

Gomes was with Nevada’s Gaming Control Board, spearheading the Stardust investigation of the 1970s before leaving to launch a career as a senior executive for Hilton, Steve Wynn, Donald Trump and, most recently, the Tropicana resorts when they were still owned by Aztar.
