Hard Rock in Atlantic City is taking major strides to become the best casino-resort along the boardwalk. Considering that the property just opened its doors in late June, there’s still a lot to be done. With this in mind, Hard Rock has been restless in establishing its place in Atlantic City. This includes creating a top-notch online casino, a sportsbook, and getting all the right people in the key positions. Which, now brings us to this news.
According to Hard Rock, John Eder is now the resorts newest CFO, and he comes with a whole lot of experience too. Not to mention, the New Jersey’s Casino Control Commission approves the move, and he can start right away. Taking a look back at his career, he’s been at the helm of the Seminole Tribe’s gaming operations in Florida for 15 years!
Also, he’s a former Walt Disney financial analyst. Plus, he’s been Hard Rock’s CFO at its Tampa, Florida location for the past eight months! So in terms of experience, Eder has what it takes to lead Hard Rock’s financial department in Atlantic City. Unfortunately, Eder has to give up all that Florida sunshine! But, Atlantic City has great beaches and the perfect summers! So, it shouldn’t be too hard for him to adjust.
As many are aware, the new Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Atlantic City has come a long way since the Trump Taj Mahal days. In fact, the company pumped more than $500 Million into renovating the property before it opened its doors on June 27th, 2018. So, now all Eder has to do is maintain the investment. However, that might sound easier said than done. The truth is, this isn’t Florida! Atlantic City’s casino industry is a whole different animal than what Eder might be used to. On that note, only time will tell how he’ll perform in America’s Favorite Playground!
