Two leadership positions filled at Cincinnati casino | Business
CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - The first two members of the senior management team at Horseshoe Casino Cincinnati have been announced.
Chris Albrecht, who was born in Parma, Ohio, has been named the casino’s assistant general manager. Albrecht will oversee daily operations at Horseshoe Cincinnati including slots and table games, food and beverage, facilities and security. Albrecht has worked at multiple Caesars Entertainment locations in various capacities during his seven year tenure with the company, including several properties in Nevada. He comes to Cincinnati from New Orleans, where since 2010 he has supported Caesars’ Enterprise Shared Services president on development and corporate structuring projects. Prior to joining Caesars, Albrecht was an investment associate at Putnam Investments in Boston. He earned a bachelor’s degree in business from MIT and an MBA from UCLA’s Anderson School of Management.
Cincinnati resident and human resources executive Lisa Rexroat-Steele has been named vice president of human resources. Bringing nearly 19 years of HR leadership experience to her new role, she will lead the casino’s efforts to develop local top talent while encouraging a culture of team member development and engagement. Her early responsibilities, which will commence in the fall, include recruiting, hiring and training the casino’s 1,700 person workforce. She joins Horseshoe from Cincinnati-based Fifth Third Bancorp, where she was most recently senior vice president of human resources, supporting the company’s Investment Advisors, Business Banking and Finance and Audit divisions. She also led the human resources function for several Fifth Third divisions during her 14 years with the company, including affiliates in Kentucky and Florida. Previously she led experienced recruiting and human resources functions at Arthur Andersen. Rexroat-Steele earned bachelor’s degrees in marketing and French from the University of Kentucky (Lexington).
“Chris and Lisa’s extensive experience will support our mission to create a talented and enthusiastic team of employees who are capable of delivering outstanding service for which Horseshoe and Caesars Entertainment are known,” Kline said.
Both with Ohio ties, the human resources and operations leaders will help establish the casino as a premiere employer and first class entertainment destination when it opens in spring 2013.
