SARATOGA SPRINGS, New York (March 29, 2018) – Saratoga Casino Holdings LLC today announced that Alex Tucker has been named General Manager of Saratoga Casino Hotel.
Alex has been an integral member of senior leadership at Saratoga Casino for over eleven years. Most recently serving as Senior Vice President of Gaming and Finance, Alex was responsible for leading the company’s finance, accounting, food and beverage, and gaming operations departments.
Tucker enters his new role of General Manager with over 28 years of experience in the gaming and hospitality industries. Prior to his tenure at Saratoga Casino, Alex held prominent positions at Batavia Downs and Wheeling Island Gaming, and also served as General Manager of Fairgrounds Gaming & Raceway. He received his degree in Business Administration from Duquesne University in Pittsburgh.
Alex’s appointment to General Manager comes after the voluntary resignation of Tom Wiedmayer, who ended his three year tenure as GM to spend more time with family. Wiedmayer still serves Saratoga Casino Holdings LLC in a consulting role.
“Alex has been instrumental to our company’s success and continued growth over the past 11 years,” said Dan Gerrity, President of Saratoga Casino Holdings LLC. “I’m confident his experience and time at the property will allow him to seamlessly transition into the General Manager role and continue to lead our team effectively.”
