Caesars Entertainment reveals changes to management

Casino operator Caesars Entertainment Corp. has shuffled its management structure.

Tom Jenkins, the company’s western division president, will now become president of operations, overseeing that function at all Caesars Entertainment properties.

In addition, John Payne will continue as president of enterprise shared services, but will drop his oversight of the company’s central division.

Chief Financial Officer Jonathan Halkyard will add the title of executive vice president.

The company announced the changes in a filing with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission.

Caesars Entertainment operates 52 casinos in 12 states, including 10 resorts on or near the Strip. The company’s properties in Las Vegas include Caesars Palace, Harrah’s Las Vegas, Planet Hollywood and the Rio.
