Gaming giant Park Place Entertainment (PPE) named Wallace ”˜Wally’ Barr as its sole COO after Mark Dodson resigned his co-COO position, the company reported Tuesday.

In addition to his COO post, Dodson was president of the company’s western casino group. As co-COO, Barr previously oversaw PPE operations in the southern and eastern United States.

The top-level management move is the first for president and CEO Thomas Gallagher, who took over operation of Park Place after Arthur Goldberg’s death last October.
