The gaming expansion bill is waiting for the approval of Governor Ralph Northam. Once the governor signs it, the bill becomes law and gambling becomes a reality.

Tribe elevates San Manuel Casino GM Loren Gill to lead enterprise and continue growth trajectory, building toward the future

 

The San Manuel Band of Mission Indians announced it has named Loren Gill as Chief Executive Officer, succeeding Jerry Peresa who was named CEO Emeritus in September 2018. Since joining San Manuel Casino as General Manager in 2015, Gill has led the Casino through unprecedented, sustained growth. In his new role, he will be responsible for overall leadership and strategic operations for San Manuel Tribal Government Operations as well as San Manuel Casino.

“Loren exemplifies the Tribe’s vision, mission and values and is committed to further unifying San Manuel across the enterprise,” said Lynn Valbuena, Chairwoman of the San Manuel Band of Mission Indians. “While his long career in the gaming industry speaks to his expertise in casino management, it is his passion for and commitment to the Tribe that make him the right person to lead our Tribal Government Operations and Casino enterprises.”

Gill has played a key leadership role both for San Manuel Casino and in the transition of the Tribal Government Operations as a member of the Interim Office of the CEO. In both roles, Gill was the key lead of the Yaamava’ expansion project, which will ultimately usher the Tribe toward a brighter future and extend San Manuel Casino’s position as one of the top entertainment destinations in Southern California.

“I am honored to serve in this important role and for the opportunity to work even closer with the Tribe to create a brighter future for San Manuel,” said Loren Gill, Chief Executive Officer of San Manuel. “The Tribe is very special to me, and I am grateful to contribute in my new role to an organization that has done so much to help others.”

With Gill’s appointment, Peter Arceo has been named Interim General Manager of San Manuel Casino until the role is filled, with an internal and external talent search currently underway. As the Casino’s Chief Operating Officer since August 2018, and, prior to that, Chief Marketing Officer since 2015, Arceo has been instrumental to the Casino’s success.

“As excited as I am to serve in a new role as San Manuel CEO, I know the casino will continue to flourish with the current leadership team,” said Gill. “Peter is a great leader who embodies our core values, and I am looking forward to continue working with him and the rest of our executive leadership team to build a greater future, together.”
