Mohegan has announced a new appointment to its team, hiring Kurt Shotzberger within the role of VP of Financial Planning & Analysis. 

Within this role, Shotzberger will be responsible for leading budgeting, financial modeling, forecasting and financial and operational analysis, as well as strategic planning.

Some of his previous positions have included various senior leadership roles at IGT and serving as VP of Gaming & Lodging investment banking with Wachovia Securities. On top of this, Shotzberger has a Bachelor of Science in Business from Wake Forest University. 

Mohegan President and CEO Ray Pineault said: "Kurt's extensive background in finance and gaming brings a unique perspective and invaluable expertise to our team.
