Effective April 29, subject to required approvals and pending licensure, Harris Jones will become the tenth member of the Caesars board.

“With her extensive experience in finance and a reputation as a thoughtful and engaged leader inside some of the largest consumer-packaged goods and automotive companies, Kim’s addition will give us another lens through which to see stronger, more dynamic future possibilities for Caesars Entertainment,” commented Carano.
