Ameristar Casino Hotel Kansas City has a new general manager, Rodney Centers, who has been with parent company Pinnacle Entertainment since 2011.
Centers, who also has the title of vice president, had been general manager at the Boomtown Casino Hotel in Bossier City, La. He said in a new release announcing his appointment that he and his family look forward to “becoming very involved in the Kansas City community. Everyone has been so welcoming; it already feels like home.”
Ameristar, which takes in the most revenue of the five large Kansas City area casinos, also is getting a new assistant general manager, Gary Stella, who has been with Pinnacle since 2001. He had been at the casino L’Auberge Lake Charles in Louisiana.
Ameristar’s previous Kansas City general manager, Sean Barnard, retired from the casino earlier this year.
