The San Diego based casino's new Vice President holds over 25 years of experience in IT and will oversee all technological operations.

Jamul Casino has named its new VP of Information Technology.

Jamul Casino believes Charles Daniel is the best fit to help it develop its customer experience. Now in charge of technological systems within the casino, Daniel steps into his first role with Jamul – having previously served as the Director of IT Operations for San Manuel Band of Mission Indians and Yaamava’ Resort & Casino.  

Located in Jamul, San Diego County, California – the casino has been owned and operated by Jamul Indian Village Development Corporation (JIVDC) since its inception in 2016. Jamul Casino is equipped with restaurants, bars and lounges, alongside 1700 slot machines, 46 live game tables and a dedicated poker room. The casino is an active contributor to the local community and hosted its second annual San Diego Poker Classic tournament last summer.  

Mary Cheeks, President & General Manager of Jamul Casino, said, “We’re thrilled to have Charles join us as the new Vice President of Information Technology. With his wealth of knowledge and experience, he will be a vital asset as Jamul Casino continues to drive technology innovation and transformation and we work toward opening the new hotel tower in 2025.”  

Daniel’s previous experience over the last two decades spans across a variety of different industries, overseeing IT initiatives across the globe for organizations such as FICO, Mitsubishi Electric and Blue Cross Blue Shield. After entering the gaming industry 10 years ago, Daniel has worked in Las Vegas, operating as an information technology consultant and executive, alongside working on developing and integrating transformative casino initiatives for Boyd Gaming & MGM Resorts International.
