The president of Encore Boston Harbor casino is stepping down, the company announced Wednesday.
Robert DeSalvio, who steered the $2.6 billion Everett casino through its construction and its first four months of operations, will be replaced by Brian Gullbrants, who had overseen the casino’s food and beverage operations.
Wynn Resorts, the casino giant that owns Encore, said DeSalvio made the decision to step down after five years at the helm. The company described the casino’s June opening as “one of the most successful casino resort openings on the East Coast.”
“Bob leaves Encore with a hand-selected team prepared to take on the challenges ahead,” Wynn Resorts chief executive Matt Maddox said in a statement. “I salute him for his commitment to the project and, most importantly, his dedication to his team.”
Wynn resorts said neither DeSalvio or Gullbrants would be available for interviews Wednesday.
