Caesars Entertainment Inc. announced Michael Kintner has been promoted to senior vice president and general manager of Harrah’s Ak-Chin Casino.
The appointment follows former GM Robert Livingston’s move to assume the role of senior vice president of tribal development and general manager of Harrah’s Resort in Southern California. Both will report to Glenn Carano, Caesars Entertainment regional president.
Kintner most recently served as director of marketing and operations, responsible for leading the efforts to promote the Harrah’s Ak-Chin Casino property and analyzing the effectiveness of all marketing initiatives and programs. He was also responsible for overseeing the performance and integrity of all slots, table games, Bingo and Keno.
“It’s a real honor to work for the Ak-Chin Indian Community and to fill the shoes of those who have come before me,” Kintner said. “My predecessors played an integral part in making Harrah’s Ak-Chin what it is today… a property rooted in tradition and culture that has been able to set an example of what is possible when a team is fully committed to working together to build something great.”
Kintner, who has worked at the property for 15 years, will be only the fifth general manager of the Ak-Chin Casino since it opened 25 years ago.
Livingston most recently served as general manager of Harrah’s Ak-Chin Casino and regional president overseeing Caesars properties in Arizona and California. Having worked for Caesars for 29 years, Livingston was instrumental in the opening of Harrah’s Northern California in 2019. In his newly created tribal development role, Livingston will be responsible for supporting tribal master plan projects throughout the country.
