Mohegan CFO Carol Anderson to step down next year

October 17, 2023

The Tribal operator is currently searching for someone to fill the role.

The Mohegan Tribal Gaming Authority has announced that CFO Carol Anderson will step down from her position next year. Anderson’s contract with the company ends March 31, 2024.

Mohegan said it is currently searching for a new CFO, and will release details regarding a successor and the transition “in the coming weeks.”

Mohegan Tribe Chairman James Gessner, Jr. took a moment to recognize Anderson for her achievements with the company and said the group wishes her well in the future.

He commented, “Carol's commitment to the Mohegan organization has been evident in the strategic decisions and leadership she has displayed throughout her tenure.

“Her contributions have been instrumental in our company’s growth, and we wish her the utmost success in her future ventures.” 

Anderson briefly discussed her reasons for leaving her position and expressed her gratitude for her time with Mohegan.

She said, “While this is a very difficult decision, it is important that I redirect focus on personal and family commitments upon the conclusion of my employment contract.

“I am grateful for the tremendous opportunity to serve the Mohegan organization and am committed to contributing to a smooth and successful transition.” 

Throughout its near-30-year history, Mohegan has formed strategic partnerships with a variety of brands, including Coca-Cola, Ticketmaster, Paramount Pictures, WNBA, Michael Jordan, the New York Yankees, the Boston Celtics and Live Nation.

Mohegan recently became a member of the International Betting Integrity Association (IBIA) through an arrangement that includes both its retail betting and digital brands.

As part of the IBIA, Mohegan will work with other operators to guard against betting corruption. The network collectively monitors suspicious activity through an anti-corruption tool designed specifically for betting markets.
