Mohegan Moves Into Management

The tribe that oversees the Mohegan Sun casinos in Connecticut and Pennsylvania is branching out into consulting and management contracts for other casinos around the States.

The Mohegan Tribal Gaming Authority announced the formation of Mohegan Gaming Advisors July 7.

“We are ready to assist casino and entertainment operations in both mature and emerging gaming markets, as well as in the conception, planning and implementation of new ventures,” MGA president Gary Van Hettinga said in a statement. “We bring a level of success to our projects that leverages 15 years of experience at our Mohegan Sun properties, and we are offering that high level of professionalism to commercial and Tribally owned gaming and entertainment properties currently in operation, in planning or development.

“We possess the experience, balanced approach and savvy to manage during both good and challenging economic times.”

MGA partnered with developer Concord Associates in May on a $600 million gambling venture at the site of the former Concord Hotel in New York’s Catskill Mountains.
