The Snoqualmie Tribe has appointed Stanford Le as the CEO and president of Snoqualmie Casino.
Le joined the casino as chief marketing officer in June 2018 and helped shape the marketing and acquisition strategy for the record-setting year and 2019. During his tenure as interim CEO, Le led the casino team through the pandemic while retaining the company’s entire team member workforce of 1,100.
A press release from Snoqualmie Casino said the work culture Le fostered led to recognition as one of Washington’s best workplaces in the Puget Sound Business Journal.
“From the first day I joined Snoqualmie Casino three years ago, I’ve been inspired by the passion from our team members, the care the Tribe has about its work family and the neighboring community, and especially the work ethic displayed by the team members whom I have the fortune of helping to develop,” Le said in a press release.
Le has more than 24 years of experience as a senior executive, leading companies including Fortune 500 casino companies, including Wynn Resorts, Sands China and Caesars Entertainment. During his tenure with those companies, he’s been part of the opening or pre-opening planning for five different integrated resort properties, which have grown significantly.
Le holds two post-graduate degrees, a master’s degree in management and a law degree he earned concurrently while attending Cornell University.
“Through the hard work of our Snoqualmie Casino team members led by Stanford Le, we have persevered through a very challenging time,” said Snoqualmie Tribe Chairman Robert de los Angeles in a press release. “We look forward to seeing Mr. Le continuing to lead Snoqualmie Casino to new heights.”
