Caesars GM leaves

Mike Caryl has left Caesars Tahoe as the general manager of the Stateline casino. His last day was July 12.

Caryl declined to comment about the reasons for his departure.

The Reno resident did indicate he had no immediate plans for the future except to say he would like to “take the summer off.”

“It just happened,” said Caryl, who added he would like to stay in the area.

Caryl has worked at Caesars for a year and its Las Vegas-based parent company, Park Place Entertainment, for more than five. He’s logged 20 years in the casino business in the Reno-Tahoe region.

Caesars’ Regional Vice President of Casino Operations Jim Roets has stepped in to take over as the interim general manager, until the gambling operation makes its selection of a final casino head.

Roets declined to comment Thursday.

Corporate spokeswoman Debbie Munch also refused to give any details on the upper management departure, citing the company’s policy of not commenting on personnel matters.

Caryl was recently selected to serve on the Washoe County Airport Authority board by the Reno Sparks Convention & Visitors Authority, upon his nomination by the Lake Tahoe Gaming Alliance to have representation from the lake.

Gaming Alliance Executive Director Steve Teshara expects Caryl will resume the four-year post on the board. According to the legislative guidelines that created the ninth seat, dismissal requires a member willfully neglect the role. This is not the case here.
