Island casino names GM

WHEELING – Delaware North Companies Gaming & Entertainment named Osi Imomoh president and general manager of Wheeling Island Hotel-Casino-Racetrack.

Beginning April 15, Imomoh will oversee all operations at the Wheeling facility, including table games, slot machines, live and simulcast racing, various restaurants and a 151-room hotel. He joined Delaware North in June 2007 as the food and beverage director at Southland Park Gaming & Racing in West Memphis, Ark.

“Osi took on a vital leadership role to help Southland Park grow in a competitive market and ensure we continued to offer a high-quality experience in an increasingly popular venue,” William Bissett, president of Delaware North, said. “I’m confident he will provide outstanding leadership for Wheeling Island.”

Imomoh replaces James W. Simms, who in February was named president and general manager of Miami Valley Gaming, Delaware North’s joint venture with Churchill Downs Inc. to develop and operate a new gaming and racing venue between Cincinnati and Dayton.
