AUSTINTOWN, Ohio – A general manager has been named to operate the Hollywood Gaming at Mahoning Valley Race Course when it opens next year.
 
Penn National Gaming on Monday announced that Michael Galle, 43, who has served as the Assistant General Manager of Hollywood Casino Toledo since June 2011, has been named General Manager of the Austintown facility.

Hollywood Gaming is under construction on State Route 46, just south of Interstate 80.  It will feature approximately 1,000 video lottery terminals, a state-of-the-art 1-mile thoroughbred racetrack, more than 1,000 enclosed, climate-controlled seats with racetrack views, a year-round simulcast wagering facility and additional food and beverage options.

He became Vice President of Casino Operations at Argosy Riverside in 2008,  and was ultimately named Assistant General Manager of Hollywood Casino Toledo in June 2011.
 
Prior to joining Penn National Gaming, Galle worked at Silver Eagle Casino from November 1992 to February 1995 and at Dubuque Casino Belle from June 1992 to November 1992. He holds a B.A. in Business Administration from Briar Cliff University in Sioux City, Iowa.
 
Penn National Gaming Senior Vice President of Regional Operations, John Finamore says  he expects Galle to help Penn National create a close relationship with the community, state officials and the Ohio thoroughbred horsemen.
