Penn National Gaming Names Todd George General Manager Of Hollywood Casino Lawrenceburg

Penn National Gaming, Inc. (Nasdaq: PENN) announced today that subject to customary regulatory approvals, Todd George, 43, has been named General Manager of Hollywood Casino Lawrenceburg. Mr. George will join Penn National early in the fourth quarter of 2012 and will report to John Finamore, Senior Vice President Regional Operations.

Mr. George has over 17 years of gaming industry experience in major regional gaming markets and comes to Penn National following 12 years at Pinnacle Entertainment, including the last six years during which he oversaw the $900 million development and launch of Pinnacle’s two St. Louis properties. He most recently served as Senior Vice President and General Manager of Pinnacle Entertainment’s Lumière Place Casino & Hotels in St. Louis, Missouri. Mr. George joined Pinnacle in 2000 as a controller at Belterra Casino Resort and was named General Manager of Boomtown Bossier City in 2003. He moved to St. Louis in 2006 on being named Vice President and General Manager of Lumière Place Casino & Hotels ahead of that property’s opening in December 2007. In October 2009, Mr. George was named Regional Vice President of the St Louis Region and General Manager of River City Casino and led the property opening in March 2010. Mr. George moved back to Lumière Place Casino & Hotels in September 2010 when he was promoted to Senior Vice President and assumed the role of General Manager. Prior to joining Pinnacle, Mr. George served in the finance department at the Turning Stone Casino from 1995 to 2000. He holds a Bachelor of Science degree in accounting from LeMoyne College in Syracuse, NY.

John Finamore commented, “We believe Todd’s extensive regional gaming market experience and knowledge of the greater Cincinnati region make him the ideal person to lead Hollywood Casino Lawrenceburg as the property evolves to face new competition in the coming months. Todd will build on the strong foundation of success at Hollywood Casino Lawrenceburg and drive further improvements in operating performance. We expect Todd to be a local leader who will foster deeper ties with the various community groups we work with on a daily basis as he consistently demonstrated in St. Louis where he served on several boards and participated in community service initiatives.
