Joe Lupo was named president of the future Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Las Vegas, subject to regulatory approval of Hard Rock International's plan to purchase MGM Resorts International's Mirage Hotel & Casino, according to a press release.
He is set to officially assume the role following the Nevada Gaming Commission licensing process.
An Ohio native, Lupo has approximately three decades' worth of experience in the casino gaming industry, notably serving as president of Hard Rock Hotel and Casino Atlantic City starting from November 2018 after working with Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Tampa.
"As president of the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Atlantic City for the past four years, Joe Lupo has achieved amazing results," Hard Rock International Chairman Jim Allen said. "Thanks to his dedication and expertise, financial results continue to outperform expectations, while our team members share an unmatched commitment to guest service and satisfaction."
Allen said he's confident Lupo will achieve even greater success.
Seasoned casino executive Anthony Faranca will be promoted to Lupo's current position as Atlantic City property president, subject to regulatory approval, on Sept. 1.
"Anthony's deep knowledge of the Atlantic City and Northeast region is an invaluable asset to the company," Allen said. "We are confident that Anthony will continue Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Atlantic City's legacy of success and impactful leadership in the community."
