Caesars’ Las Vegas exec shifting to Atlantic City

Rick Mazer, regional president of Caesars Entertainment, speaks at a press conference on Friday, Sept. 9, 2011 in which Caesars Entertainment Corporation and Caesars Foundation presented a $750,000, three-year grant to The Public Education Foundation to support the non-profit’s Teacher Exchange initiative.

The man in charge of the Flamingo, The Quad and Gansevoort is leaving Las Vegas.

Spurred by corporate shuffle at Caesars Entertainments Corp., Rick Mazer has taken a job as president and general manager of Harrah's Atlantic City.

There, he'll oversee construction of the resort's new $128 million convention center and a new development in Boston, according to Caesars Spokesman Gary Thompson.

Eileen Moore, who previously headed the company's business in Illinois and Southern Indiana, will replace Mazer president and general manager of the Flamingo, The Quad and Gansevoort.

Her post is tentative, pending the approval of regulators.

Mazer began his career as an Atlantic City craps dealer.

His appointment is contingent on New Jersey regulatory approval.
