ATLANTIC CITY — Rick Mazer, regional president of Harrah’s since 2013, has left Caesars Entertainment, the company announced Thursday.

Kevin Ortzman immediately became regional president in the Atlantic City region, which oversees Bally’s, Caesars and Harrah’s Resort.

“Rick served the company for 21 years in a variety of leadership roles, and on behalf of Caesars Entertainment, we thank Rick for his contributions and wish him all the best in his future endeavors,” read a statement from Caesars.

Ortzman has been with Caesars Entertainment for 13 years. Since 2012, he has been president of Bally’s and Caesars and is president of the New Jersey Casino Association and on the Casino Reinvestment Development Authority board.

Karie Hall, who joined Harrah’s Resort earlier this year from The Cromwell in Las Vegas, will continue as general manager of Harrah’s Resort, the company said.
