A longtime gaming executive is now vice president and general manager of the Stardust hotel-casino on the Las Vegas Strip.
Tony Taeubel, who most recently served as chief operating officer of gaming operations at the Pearl River Resort in Choctaw, Miss., took the position at the 1,552-room Las Vegas property Monday, a spokesman for owner Boyd Gaming Corp. said.
Taeubel, who also spent six years as an agent with the Nevada Gaming Control Board, replaces John Miner, who retired as executive vice president and general manager of the property last year. Rudy Prieto, vice president of casino operations for Boyd Gaming, held the position in the interim.
