So now that Eldorado Resorts has full control over Tropicana, it’s also a new beginning for Steve. Even though he’s been a part of this casino for some time now and his responsibilities will pretty much stay the same although Eldorado has given him much more control of the casino operations. And this is due to the fact, Steve worked his way up the ranks and knows this business inside and out.
A History of Success
Do you remember the 2008 economic disaster? Well as a result of that, several companies fell into bankruptcy. And Tropicana wasn’t spared and forced to declare Chapter 11. However, in 2010 Carl Icahn purchased the casino and gave Steve and former CEO Tony Rodio the task of bringing the Tropicana back to life. So as the story goes, Steve rolled up his sleeves and gave it his all.
Seven years later, the Tropicana had risen to the second most successful casino in Atlantic City. In fact, reports show that the casino generated $390.9 million by 2017! So as you can see, Steve knows a thing or two about building a successful casino from the ground up!
According to Steve Gallendar, “I spend a lot of time on the floor with the people. I’m upfront and centre every day leading operations forward. People know me, and they’re used to seeing me. So going forward, my new role here will not differ much from my previous position.”
He then went on to say, “We’re doing very well and remain second in the market. It’s hard work no doubt about it, but we saw a lot of people come to town this year because of our efforts and that’s been great for Atlantic City as a whole. It’s a bright future ahead! We have so much non-gaming amenities at the Tropicana that we’ll easily be able to compete.”
Experience It Yourself
With that said, you can still expect to see Steve out there engaging with folks as usual. Also, Tropicana has really been stepping up! Recently, the casino acquired Chelsea Tower, opened a spa, brought in several new restaurants and bars.
So as you can see, Tropicana is quite relevant in Atlantic City. On that note, stay tuned they’ll have much more to reveal in the coming months.
