Malloy has acted as an internal marketing leader for several casinos, including MGM Resorts International, Table Mountain Casino and Potawatomi Casino Hotel.

Jamul Casino has chosen to add to its executive team by naming Tom Malloy as VP of Marketing for the casino. Malloy will now oversee all aspects of the Jamul Casino marketing identity and focus on top-level strategic development that resides with the tribe’s primary goals of community involvement and guest expansion, particularly with the addition of Jamul Casino’s hotel tower opening in 2025.

Jamul Indian Village is one of 12 federally recognized tribes that are part of the Kumeyaay Nation, with roots in the area going back 12,000 years. They are the owners and operators of Jamul Casino. 

“All of us here at Jamul are delighted to welcome Tom as our new Vice President of Marketing. His vast experience and innovative approach will bring dynamic new strategies to our marketing efforts surrounding the casino as well as the opening of our new, luxury hotel tower in 2025,” Jamul Casino President and GM Mary Cheeks said. 

Malloy began his career as an advertising agency executive, focused on technology and healthcare before entering the gaming industry in 1998 as Director of the Gaming Division at R&R Partners in Las Vegas. He has also acted as an internal marketing leader for several casinos, both tribal and commercial across the country, including MGM Resorts International, Table Mountain Casino and Potawatomi Casino Hotel. Malloy most recently served as VP of Marketing at Gun Lake Casino in Wayland, Michigan.

“I’m very excited to join such an esteemed and highly regarded team of operators. I’m grateful to both tribal leadership and to Mary Cheeks for giving me this opportunity,” Malloy said. 

Malloy has led a variety of companies in intentional and strategic marketing approaches, from new programs and overseeing player outreach and revenue generation to social media and website development.
