Atlantic City’s most anticipated resort and casino, TEN, has recently announced their new executive board appointments.

“Our executive team is what makes the difference. That is why I am excited to announce our best-in-class executives with unmatched expertise and vision,” says Robert Landino, CEO, TEN. “If the question is ‘how will TEN be different,’ the answer most definitely starts with having an all-star executive team.”

Joining the team will be Frank Leone, senior vice president of casino operations; Cindi LePine, vice president of hotel operations; and Vincent Turrano, vice president of food and beverage.

Leone has worked with companies such as Trump Taj Mahal, Foxwoods, MGM Grand at Foxwoods and SLS in Las Vegas, where he oversaw all gaming operations. At TEN, Leone will be in charge of configuring the casino and increasing customer engagement. He will also be responsible for the loyalty rewards program.

LePine has more than 26 years of experience in hotel services in the Atlantic City area. Prior to joining the TEN team, LePine worked as the director of hotel operations at the Taj Mahal.

“Our iconic building and beachfront property is already a 10 out of 10. Our goal is to make sure we match our hotel and guest services with that highest level of quality,” says LePine. At TEN, LePine will focus on the guest experience; ensuring fun for people of all ages, and overseeing everything from housekeeping to amenities, to valet parking.

Turrano, the new vice president of food and beverage, most recently worked at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Tampa, Fla., as the vice president of food and beverage. He also has experience working for Borgata’s and Bally’s, and Tropicana and Resorts Hotel and Casino.

TEN is still in development, but the team is striving to get the property fully operational.

If you want to be sure your meeting in the Northeast will strengthen team bonds, consider holding it at Cliff House Maine. Nestled on 70 acres atop Bald Head Cliff on the southern coast of Maine, the luxury property offers 226 guest rooms, including 40 suites, an adjacent 18-hole golf course, and 25,000 square feet of conference and meeting space that can accommodate up to 300 attendees. Venues include the Atlantic Ballroom, with its double-height panoramic windows offering endless views of the Atlantic Ocean.

 

Last November, New York Governor Kathy Hochul announced a comprehensive $450 million “Bring Back Tourism, Bring Back Jobs” recovery package to support New York’s hard-hit tourism sector. Part of that package is a $25 million “Meet in New York” grant program that focuses on venues and events that generate and support business-related travel. “This holistic approach to visitation recognizes the spending habits of business and convention travelers for overnight stays, food, and activities,” the governor’s press office noted.

 

After having closed its doors in November 2019 for an extensive renovation, The Pridwin Hotel & Cottages on Shelter Island, New York, is accepting reservations beginning July 15. The 49-room luxury property, which dates to 1927, will be reopening under the ownership of a collaboration between Cape Resorts, a hospitality investment and management company specializing in adaptive reuse and historical preservation of resort properties, and the Petry family, who has owned and operated the resort since 1961.
