MontBleu Resort Casino & Spa appointed Stephen Ditchkus to be its general manager, the business announced Monday.
Ditchkus is a 25-year hotel and gaming industry veteran, who most recently served as chief operating officer at Lac Courte Oreilles Casino and Lodge, a 300-employee property in Hayward, Wisc., where he guided the resort to a nearly 80 percent income growth in slots, table games, food and beverage, bingo and lodging, a press release stated.
Ditchkus cites a commitment to personal customer service as key to promoting and positioning the property as a leading gaming, entertainment and dining venue in South Lake Tahoe. His plans are designed to complement Tahoe’s outdoor appeal with the property’s indoor amenities with an emphasis on gaming, the release stated. His gaming experience began at Lake Tahoe in 1988.
“Our plan is to combine the spectacular attractions of Lake Tahoe with the amenities of the property, with a focus on the gaming experience,” Ditchkus stated. “It’s a great time to be back in Tahoe with the destination moving forward with all its improvements for visitors and locals, alike.”
