Local gaming executive Bill Warner has resigned as a director of casino supplier Shuffle Master Inc., just one year after joining the board.
Shuffle Master said in a regulatory filing Tuesday that Warner, 45, resigned effective last Saturday for personal business reasons.
"His resignation was not due to any disagreement with the company’s senior management or independent auditors or about any disagreement with the company’s operations, policies, practices or financial statements," the Las Vegas-based company said.
Warner is the managing member of Warner Gaming LLC, a Las Vegas gaming consulting and management company that has a contract with the Inn of the Mountain Gods Resort and Casino in New Mexico.
Warner said Tuesday that on top of that, he and a partner are proposing to develop a casino in Massachusetts should legislators and the governor there clear the way for casinos.
Warner, formerly a longtime Station Casinos Inc. executive, said he resigned from the board of Shuffle Master to spend more time on his business and with his family.
"I absolutely love the company," he said of Shuffle Master. "They have a great position in the market."
