Prior to his tenure at those properties, he was General Manager of Gold Strike Casino in Tunica, Mississippi, where he successfully drove initiatives that led the property to reach its highest market share for three consecutive years.

“I’m honored to be embarking on this new journey at Borgata,” said Rytterstrom. “This property is an integral part of the Atlantic City community, and I can’t wait to jump in and continue to help drive growth and success throughout not just this amazing city but New Jersey and surrounding regions.”
