Eldorado Resorts, Inc., announced earlier this month that chief operating officer, Joseph Billhimer, left the company effective January 5. Billhimer’s responsibilities will be assumed by other members of the company’s senior management team, including Chairman and CEO Gary Carano.

“We thank Joe for his contributions to Eldorado Resorts and wish him the best in the future,” Carano said.

Additionally, Chief Financial Officer Bob Jones announced his intention to retire, effective March 15. Tom Reeg, president of Eldorado Resorts Inc., will assume the additional title and responsibilities of chief financial officer upon Jones’ retirement. Stephanie Lepori, the company’s senior vice president of finance, was promoted to chief accounting officer as of Jan. 1.

“Bob has been instrumental helping Eldorado Resorts transform from a small, family-owned business with one property in Reno, into a diversified public gaming company with seven properties in five states,” Carano said. “We thank him for his 30 years of service and wish him well in his retirement.”

Eldorado Resorts is a casino entertainment company that owns and operates seven properties in five states, including the Eldorado Resort Casino, the Silver Legacy Resort Casino and Circus Circus in Reno; the Eldorado Resort Casino in Shreveport, LA; Scioto Downs Racino in Columbus, OH; Mountaineer Casino Racetrack & Resort in Chester, WV; and Presque Isle Downs & Casino in Erie, PA.
