Jonathan A. ArnesenJonathan A. Arnesen
Chief Administrative Officer
Gomes Gaming, Inc.

Having worked in many diverse and sophisticated hospitality/gaming related enterprises in various areas and markets, Jon is an individual easily adaptable to all cultures, mindsets and geographical locations. Throughout his career, he has effectively taken on progressive responsibilities.

After holding several senior management positions at Tropicana Las Vegas, Caesar’s Tahoe, and the Sir Francis Drake Hotel, Jon was recruited for the position of Managing Director of the Wyndham Resort in Orlando, Florida, which was to be the flagship for the Wyndham chain. The hotel was under construction and behind schedule when Jon arrived in Orlando. Under Jon’s leadership, the hotel subsequently became the number one property of Wyndham, and his team was selected as the management team of the year for both the Wyndham, and subsequently, the Stouffer Hotel Companies.

In 1987, Jon was recruited by Jack Davis and Donald Trump to reposition Resorts International in Atlantic City and open the Taj Mahal Casino. He was successful in repositioning Resorts International, which resulted in a profitable sale to the Merv Griffin Organization. At the Taj Mahal, Jon was charged with the recruitment of 7,800 enthusiastic and quality colleagues worldwide for the Taj Mahal. The property was opened ahead of schedule, satisfying all budgetary and guest experience parameters within Jon’s area of responsibility.

In October of 1990, Jon was recruited by Robert Sturges, President of the Gaming Group of Carnival Cruise Lines as Chief Operating Officer of the Crystal Palace; a 1650 room resort and casino in the Bahamas. Together they repositioned the Crystal Palace Resort, reduced expenses, and made significant changes in the terms and conditions of the agreement with the Union and the government. He was then promoted to President of Carnival Puerto Rico and was responsible for the development of one of the largest gaming resorts in the Caribbean, and the coordination of Carnival’s operation on the Island of Puerto Rico and the Caribbean.

Mohegan Sun eventually recruited Jon to join their organization to spearhead the development of their new addition named the “Sunburst Project”. Jon also played a key role in laying the foundation for Mohegan Sun’s Phase 3 expansion, including new strategies, strategic concepts and product offerings.

In October of 2005, Jon was recruited by Nevada Gold & Casinos’ Board to oversee acquisition, development, operations, and management of gaming, hospitality and entertainment properties/projects of the company in multiple jurisdictions globally.

In February of 2008, Jon was hired by Jumeirah Group and Tatweer as Managing Director of Asia Asia, to develop the premier entertainment and hospitality development of the Middle East comprised of the world’s largest hotel with 6,500 luxury hotel rooms/suites, 2,300 hotels/serviced apartments/villas, 500,000 sq. ft. meeting space, 1,000,000 sq. ft. of high end office space, 2 theme parks, a 20,000 seat arena, 2,500 seat Dragone Show, 1,000,000 sq. ft. of quality retail and over 100 signature restaurants, lounges and night clubs.
