Stephen Ditchkus appointed general manager at Montbleu Resort

3 December 2013

(PRESS RELEASE) -- Stephen Ditchkus, a 25-year hotel and gaming industry veteran, was appointed general manager at MontBleu Resort Casino & Spa, a Tropicana Entertainment Inc. property.

Ditchkus most recently was chief operating officer at Lac Courte Oreilles Casino and Lodge, a 300-employee property in Hayward, Wisc., where he guided the resort to a nearly 80 percent income growth in slots, table games, food and beverage, bingo and lodging.

His casino management background provided leadership roles in Nevada, Mississippi and Louisiana. Ditchkus cites a commitment to personal customer service as key to promoting and positioning the property as a leading gaming, entertainment and dining venue in Tahoe South. His plans are designed to complement Tahoe’s outdoor appeal with the property’s indoor amenities with an emphasis on gaming.

His gaming experience began at Lake Tahoe in 1988 where he saw a future flush with possibilities in hospitality, gaming and hotel management. He pursued his career and gained first-hand experience in all phases of operations.

“Our plan is to combine the spectacular attractions of Lake Tahoe with the amenities of the property, with a focus on the gaming experience,” said Ditchkus. “It’s a great time to be back in Tahoe with the destination moving forward with all its improvements for visitors and locals, alike.”

Ditchkus is responsible for all casino and hotel management for MontBleu including its 45,000-square-foot casino, 437-room hotel, 16,000-square-foot Onsen Spa, two nightclubs, three lounges, convention center, 1,700-seat showroom, 5,200 seasonal outdoor venue, Four-Diamond Ciera Steak + Chophouse and two restaurants that provide guests with a full-blown 24/7 high-energy resort experience.

He is a native of New Jersey and graduated from Florida State University. Ditchkus and his wife Kristin have two girls Alexis, 16 and Katie, 12.
