Jan. 14--Isle of Capri Casinos president and CEO Virginia McDowell will retire in April and chief financial officer Eric Hausler will succeed her as the casino operator's top executive.
The Creve Coeur-based operator of 14 casinos said Thursday that McDowell's retirement as an executive and a board member is effective April 27, the end of its fiscal year.
McDowell joined Isle of Capri in 2007 as president and chief operating officer after working on the turnaround team at Argosy Gaming Co. in Alton. Prior to Argosy, she was executive vice president and chief information officer for Trump Entertainment Resorts.
"Virginia has made significant contributions to Isle's development and success," Isle of Capri chairman Robert Goldstein said in a statement.
Hausler joined Isle of Capri in 2009 and was named chief financial officer in 2014. He previously led development initiatives at Trump Entertainment Resorts and was managing director in fixed income research and trading at Bear Stearns.
The company announced multiple executive changes, including the promotion of chief operating officer Arnold Block to president and chief operating officer. Michael Hart, who is currently vice president of treasury and risk management, will become senior vice president of accounting and treasury.
