GOMES GAMING | Executives | George Wackenheim

George E. Wackenheim, PHR
Vice President Human Resources
Gomes Gaming, Inc.

George WackenheimGeorge Wackenheim began his hotel casino career at Harrah’s Reno and Harrah’s Lake Tahoe in 1977 under the tutelage of Bill Harrah and Rome Andreotti. With Bill’s passing in 1978, George worked exclusively for Rome developing staffing and labor programs designed to provide exceptional customer service at all volume levels. During this part of his career, he conducted studies in all areas of the hotel and gaming operation.

In 1986 George was recruited by Peter Boynton, President/COO of Caesars Atlantic City and returned to the state in which he grew up to assume industrial engineering responsibilities for CAC. During his time at CAC, George was asked to move into Human Resources and bring his analytical and interpersonal skills into that arena. He was fortunate to work directly with Vice President Roland Coleman and was Executive Director of Human Resources until leaving CAC in 1995.

George spent two years at Trump Taj Mahal as Vice President of Labor Management working with Dennis Gomes and continued to work with Dennis at the Tropicana Casino and Resort in Atlantic City as AVP of Human Resources. During the ensuing eight years, George was responsible for the Human Resources function at the Tropicana.

After briefly leaving the industry to head up Human Resources at a financial institution and later a public entity, George returned in 2010 to work with Dennis at Gomes Gaming. The decision was an easy one and in George’s words “everyone should work for someone like Dennis at least once in his/her life.” For George this is the third time and he believes that Dennis has certainly saved the best for last!

George has a Bachelor of Science in Engineering from Duke University, an MBA from Boston University and recently obtained his Professional in Human Resources Certification (PHR). He is a long time member of the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) and an enthusiastic oenophile, writing a monthly wine column for Ed Hitzel’s Restaurant Newsletter for five years.
