Arlington, WA – Angel Of The Winds Casino Resort is pleased to announce that Stephen Heise and Allen Kreger have been appointed as Chief People Officer and Chief Technology Officer, respectively.
Heise brings over 16 years of human resource management experience and 20 years of experience at the VP level to Angel Of The Winds Casino Resort, most recently from the Desert Diamond Casino in Phoenix, Arizona. Before transitioning to the gaming industry, Heise honed his abilities in hospitality. As a business manager for Walt Disney World Resort, 10 of his 45 Cast Members won the highly sought-after “Partners in Excellence” award for great service — an accolade reserved for only the top 2% of Cast Members enrolled in the program.
“I’m excited to continue to be the best employer in the area and provide the friendliest service to our guests,” answered Heise when asked what he hoped to bring his new position. When asked the same question, Kreger said, “I am a customer-service-type personality and thoroughly enjoy making things function as or better than intended.”
Kreger has over 20 years of information technology experience, and his wide-ranging career includes positions at Oversee.Net, Caremark RX (now CVS), and the San Manuel Band of Mission Indians in Highland, California. While working in Highland, Allen oversaw a major IT infrastructure overhaul to their gaming space, tribal government, fire department, schools, and other institutions within the community. His work helped bring about the implementation of wireless technology and significant gaming-floor improvements.
Both Heise and Kreger noted their excitement to live in the beautiful Pacific Northwest and to work in the gaming industry. “We’re thrilled to welcome Steve and Allen to the Angel Of The Winds Casino Resort Team. We’re growing, evolving, and just getting started,” said Travis O’Neil, Chief Executive Officer.
