HEMINGWAYS Casino has appointed John McGregor as its new complex general manager.
McGregor first became intrigued by the gaming industry while treating himself to a weekend away at one of South Africa’s best-loved resorts.
“I found the environment very attractive and decided to ask them for a job. I started two weeks later,” said McGregor.
Now, 30 years on, he counts the opening of two casinos in Namibia and a palatial resort hotel in the North West province, along with the development and launch of Blackrock Casino in Newcastle, among his career achievements.
When asked what motivates him to keep growing,he responded: “It is a very exciting and sexy industry and is motivating within itself.”
He said the biggest changes that he has noted since starting out, have been in the technology and people.
Going forward, he hopes to grow Hemingways Casino’s business and profitability. Visit www.hemingways.co.za
