Reports: Caesars Will Name New CEO Monday
Caesars Entertainment Corp. is expected to name a new chief executive, according to several financial publications.
Tony Rodio, the top executive of privately held Affinity Gaming since October, is expected to be named the successor to Caesars CEO Mark Frissora Monday.
Rodio has long been speculated as one of the possible candidates for the job through his association with billionaire investor Carl Icahn, who currently holds a 20 percent stake in Caesars.
Rodio worked with Icahn at Tropicana Entertainment before it was sold to Eldorado Resorts in October.
