The Cordish Companies today announced the appointment of gaming industry veteran JOHN J. CHASZAR as EXECUTIVE VICE PRESIDENT AND GENERAL MANAGER of the new LIVE! CASINO & HOTEL LOUISIANA, a $270+ million world-class gaming, dining, hotel, and entertainment destination set to open in Bossier City in the first quarter of 2025. In his new role, Mr. Chaszar will manage the development, grand opening, and day-to-day operations of the first land-based casino property in the Shreveport-Bossier market.

With over three decades of gaming and resort operations experience, Mr. Chaszar has held leadership positions with several notable entertainment and hotel companies across the country in Louisiana, Texas, Mississippi, Missouri, Kansas, Indiana, Colorado, Illinois, and South Carolina.

He most recently served as senior vice president and general manager of Tropicana Casino in Evansville, Indiana, which had also transitioned from a floating to a land-based casino under his leadership. Mr. Chaszar’s experience with that transformation will be invaluable as the new land-based gaming facility takes shape at Live! Casino & Hotel Louisiana.

During his career, he spent more than a decade with Penn Entertainment as vice president and general manager at several of its properties including Hollywood Casino in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, and Hollywood Casino Resort in Bay St. Louis, Mississippi. Mr. Chaszar also spent over 13 years with Quorum Hotels & Resorts in leadership positions across eight different locations.
