Penn National Gaming Names Rafael Verde General Manager Of Zia Park Casino

Jay Snowden commented, “We are very excited to welcome Rafael to the Penn National team and believe his track record in developing and growing gaming operations in markets of varying size across the U.S. make him an ideal candidate to build on the strong performance at Zia Park Casino. Zia Park is benefiting from a healthy economy in its east New Mexico and west Texas feeder markets and we believe Rafael’s success in cultivating relationships with Texas-based customers, particularly at Pinnacle’s property in Lake Charles, Louisiana, will serve him well as he works to replicate that success in New Mexico in both our gaming and racing operations.

“Zia Park is a key member of both the Thoroughbred and Quarter Horse racing communities in New Mexico and we look to a continued close partnership with the local horsemen under Rafael’s leadership. I’d like to thank Brent Willits for his record of service at Penn National and for the solid foundation he built at Zia Park since assuming the GM role at the facility in 2010. On behalf of the entire senior management team at Penn National, I wish him the best in his retirement.”
