CLEVELAND -- The general manager of Ohio's first casino opening Monday says being a quarterback in his younger years helped prepare him for his current leadership role.
Thirty-seven-year-old Marcus Glover arrived at Horseshoe Casino Cleveland with nine years of experience in the business. He was a management consultant before getting into casino work.
His time in the business includes leadership jobs in New Orleans, St. Louis, and Biloxi, Miss., where he helped reopen the Katrina-damaged casino. Glover says post-hurricane work on the Gulf Coast improved his skills in working with people, teaching him empathy for others when things go wrong.
Glover serves on the board of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Board president Terry Stewart says people have great expectations for Glover.
