Ralenkotter Loses LVCVA Consulting Contract As He Faces Criminal Charges

Former Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority CEO Rossi Ralenkotter has lost his $15-thousand-per-month consulting contract.

The Las Vegas Review-Journal reports Steve Hill, Ralenkotter’s replacement, reached the decision with the agency’s executive committee, effective immediately.

Ralenkotter was brought up on felony charges stemming from the misuse of airline gift cards the agency paid for. Two other former authority officials and a Southwest Airlines employee also face charges.
