KINDER, LA – Coushatta Casino Resort has named Todd Stewart as its new General Manager. He began his career at Coushatta as the resort’s Chief Financial Officer in October 2020 and has served as Interim General Manager since June 2021.
“We are excited to see Todd Stewart embrace the challenge of leading Louisiana’s premier gaming resort,” said Coushatta Tribal Chairman Jonathan Cernek. “Todd’s vision is true to the Coushatta values that reflect hard work and humility. We believe his hard work and dedication will lead our Coushatta Casino Resort team to new heights.”
Stewart’s experience of 30-plus years in the gaming and hospitality industry – including more than 17 years at the corporate and property level with a large publicly traded regional gaming operator and 5-plus years working with tribal gaming operations – greatly benefits his position as leader of the resort’s management team.
As Coushatta’s General Manager, Stewart will oversee all aspects of the resort’s administrative functions and activities, including personnel, procurement, finance, records and property management systems, ensuring compliance with tribal, federal, state, and gaming commission requirements.
