CEO position at Rush Street Gaming to change hands

The current CEO and Co-Founder of Rush Street Gaming, Greg Carlin, has announced his planned departure from the company effective 1 May 2022. 

The operator will appoint its current Chief Financial Officer (CFO) Tim Drehkoff to the position following Carlin’s departure. 

Rush Street Chairman Neil Bluhm has spoken on Carlin’s decision to step aside. 

He said: “We thank Greg for his many contributions and for helping to build a great business. Greg has a proven eye for recruiting and developing top talent, of which Tim is a great example. We wish Greg the very best and look forward to many future successes under Tim’s leadership.” 

Drehkoff’s appointment follows his role in spearheading Rush Street’s expansion into US markets, particularly in Chicago’s growing casino industry. 

Rush Street notes that in nearly 20 years at the company, Drehkoff has successfully led debt financings of $8bn, and managed $2bn of capital investments. 

Carlin said: “Rush Street is in great hands with Tim as CEO, and we’ve never had a more talented group of executives at all our properties. 

“It has been the honour of a lifetime to start a business with Neil and develop and operate six successful casino projects, all of which have had a positive impact on their host communities. I’m especially proud of the culture we’ve built, and I’m excited about the path ahead for Rush Street Gaming and myself. My sincere gratitude to the entire Rush Street Gaming team.” 

Rush Street Gaming is currently fronting casino developments in all of Mississippi, Pennsylvania, Illinois, New York and Virginia. It also has land-based entities across North America, including Fallsview Casino Resort in Ontario.
