The former general manager of the Rivers Casino in Des Plaines, Ill., is the new general manager for the Rivers Casino in Pittsburgh, Rush Street Gaming announced Wednesday.

Bill Keena has worked in the casino industry since he graduated from the University of Nevada, Las Vegas in 1988. He and Rush Street opened the Illinois casino in 2011.

“We are thrilled to have Bill back and running one of our properties,” Greg Carlin, CEO of Rush Street Gaming, said in a news release. “He is an exceptional leader, focused on providing the best customer experience, working closely with the community and fostering our ‘team member’ culture.”

Keena replaces Craig Clark, who had been the casino’s general manager since 2011 and spoke with the Tribune-Review last week. The company’s news release said Clark had left Rivers Casino but didn’t provide details.

“We thank Craig for his many years of service and wish him the best,” Carlin said.

Company spokesman Jack Horner declined further comment on Clark’s departure.

Keena began his career with Harrah’s, which is part of Caesars Entertainment Corp. He started in the finance department and worked his way up to a regional president position overseeing four full-service casinos and resorts in Missouri and Iowa.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
