In my decades of working in the Hospitality and Gaming Industry, I have met hundreds (if not thousands) of professionals. I have watched many of those individuals rise through the ranks to achieve great success in earning their reputations for character and integrity in leadership.
When the idea of a “Best Of The Best” rank was first discussed with colleagues at the last G2E gathering in Las Vegas, it sounded like a grand idea to recognize those individuals at the top of the profession. We organized a small group of industry insiders to select a single person each month to be honored with the “Best Of The Best” recognition.
We applaud the success of leaders who show us the way to do business and thrive, in any environment.
