Eldorado Resort Casino Shreveport is proud to announce the appointment of Robert Urland as General Manager.  He takes over the position from Mike Whitemaine, who has been named Senior Vice President of Regional Operations for Eldorado Resorts corporate division and will be based in Ohio.

Urland has been with the property since 2005, serving as Director of Food and Beverage before being promoted to Assistant General Manager in 2008. As General Manager, he will oversee all Eldorado Shreveport operations, including gaming, food and beverage, player development, human resources, entertainment and facilities. 

“It is truly an honor to be named General Manager of Eldorado Shreveport,” Urland states. “Since Eldorado came to the market in 2005, we have upgraded the property and seen business grow every year, becoming the premier resort casino in Shreveport-Bossier.  We offer the highest payback in Louisiana, and no one else does fun, interactive promotions like we do. I look forward to building on those principles and working closely with our fantastic employees for continued success.”  

Originally from Victor, NY, Urland served in the United States Marine Corps before moving to New Orleans. He worked for the Hilton Riverside in New Orleans, moving to Bossier in 1998 to work for Horseshoe Casino and Harrah’s Louisiana Downs. He has worked in the Shreveport-Bossier gaming market for more than 18 years.
