Video exclusive: Melonie Johnson on Borgata and the future of Atlantic City


Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa leader exclusively joins the GI Huddle.

What better backdrop than Borgata for a video interview about gaming?

And what better leader to assess the year Atlantic City has just had than Borgata president & COO Melonie Johnson?

Joining us for the latest episode of the GI Huddle, Johnson tells us all about her career, her opening few months at Borgata; and how she transitioned into the role while, in her own words, being an unknown quantity for her new employees.

An esteemed executive within the sector, the Borgata president offers plenty of advice for aspiring executives, as well as analysing Atlantic City's revival in recent years.

That, of course, was before the COVID-19 pandemic gave New Jersey its toughest period yet, something Johnson is honest and up-front about.
