CAPE GIRARDEAU, MO (KFVS) - The Isle of Capri Casino announced Chet Koch will take over as vice president and general manager of the new Cape Girardeau casino.
Koch currently is in the same role with the Isle of Capri Casino in Kansas City, and has been a part of a dozen casino openings in his career.
Koch says the construction is still on schedule with a completion date expected in late 2012.
Koch says so far, so good for the Cape project.
And although he's been a member of many casino opening teams, each new project has it's own challenges.
"A big challenge for us right now is to get the right people in the right places so we can best serve our guests," Koch said.
Koch says he will have his executive team in place by the end of the first quarter next year.
Hiring and training of other employees will begin over the summer.
