Encore casino president released five months after opening



Encore Boston Harbor boss Bob DeSalvio is out less than five months after the huge Everett casino opened.

Wynn Resorts, which owns the casino, said in a news release that DeSalvio is "down stairs" and will be replaced by Brian Gullbrants, a former executive at Ritz-Carlton who has been running food and drink at Encore's luxury hotel.

Wynn Resorts credited DeSalvio with overseeing a successful opening after a years-long, high-effort process – one that was often full of controversy until the June opening.

Wynn Chief Matt Maddox said in a statement, "Bob DeSalvio's ability to collaborate with community leaders and elected officials, put together a world-class team and lead them to produce and launch a top-quality project is remarkable. His unique talent for both managing a complicated building process while listening to the needs of key stakeholders was crucial to our success. "

Wynn Resort officials said it was DeSalvio's choice to pay.

DeSalvio, who previously oversaw the opening of a casino in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, has stood to get Encore open for the past five years. Encore is the most expensive private project in Massachusetts history, at $ 2.6 billion.

Wynn also announced that pending regulatory approval, the shiny golden casino will add several senior executives, including Jenny Holaday as Executive Vice President for Operations and Eric Kraus as Senior Vice President for Communications and Public Affairs.
