Rush Street Gaming has announced the planned departure of Greg Carlin, CEO and Co-Founder, and the appointment of longtime Rush Street Gaming executive Tim Drehkoff from CFO to CEO. The transition is effective 1 May 2022.
Rush Street Gaming Chairman Neil Bluhm said: “We thank Greg for his many contributions and for helping to build a great business. Greg has a proven eye for recruiting and developing top talent, of which Tim is a great example. We wish Greg the very best and look forward to many future successes under Tim’s leadership.”
Tim Drehkoff has been with Bluhm and Rush Street Gaming for nearly 20 years and CFO since 2012. His proven leadership has earned respect companywide and industrywide. Most recently, Drehkoff has been focused on Rush Street’s vision for developing Chicago’s growing casino industry, along with other emerging U.S. and international gaming markets.
Drehkoff has spearheaded more than $2 billion in capital investments and $8 billion in successful debt financings, across multiple gaming jurisdictions, during his tenure. Prior to Rush Street, Drehkoff was a vice president with LAMB Partners, Bluhm’s family office.
“Rush Street is in great hands with Tim as CEO, and we’ve never had a more talented group of executives at all our properties. It has been the honor of a lifetime to start a business with Neil and develop and operate six successful casino projects, all of which have had a positive impact on their host communities. I’m especially proud of the culture we’ve built, and I’m excited about the path ahead for Rush Street Gaming and for myself. My sincere gratitude to the entire Rush Street Gaming team,” Carlin said.
