The Casino Association of New Jersey has named a new president, it announced this week.
Terry Glebocki, the CEO of Ocean Casino Resort, becomes the trade organization’s first female president, succeeding Steve Callender, who retired in March.
“I am privileged and honored to succeed Steve Callender as the next president of the Casino Association of New Jersey,” Glebocki said in a prepared statement. “Steve successfully led our organization during the COVID-19 pandemic, and we are grateful for the strength and leadership he has shown in these unprecedented times.
“I am thrilled to lead the CANJ forward as we work to help Atlantic City and the region recover from this devastating pandemic and continue the ongoing revitalization of this world-class destination resort.”
CANJ noted that women lead three of Atlantic City’s nine casino hotels, a signal that the industry is changing.
“I am proud of my fellow female executives who are paving the way for other talented women to join the leadership ranks, further transforming the gaming industry into a more diverse and dynamic workplace,” Glebocki said.
