SAULT STE. MARIE, MI – Sault Tribe Member, Dana M. Schlehuber, has been named General Manager of the Kewadin Casino Sault Ste. Marie property.

“I’m pleased to announce that one of our very own tribal citizens, and long term Kewadin team member, has been selected as the Kewadin Sault General Manager,” said Aaron Payment, Sault Tribe Chairperson. “Dana is an educated tribal member who has dedicated years to our tribe. I respect her commitment. The tribe’s goal has always been to train and promote our members, so it’s exciting to see this goal become a reality once again.”

Schlehuber has been with Kewadin Casinos and Sault Ste. Marie Tribe of Chippewa Indians for the past 18 years. She previously served as Kewadin Casinos Comptroller.

“I love to be challenged and I love improving operational efficiencies,” said Schlehuber. “I’m extremely excited to get to work and see what positive changes we can make with both the Sault property and the Kewadin Team. We have so much potential and I can’t wait to see the team and the property shine.”
