Harrahâ€™s Denies Garber Hire Tale
15 Apr, 2009 / GamblingCompliance Ltd. / Scott Longley
Harrahâ€™s has moved to deny rumours that ex-PartyGaming chief Mitch Garber has joined the company to run an online operation which would incorporate the World Series of Poker (WSOP).
A spokesperson for the Las Vegas giant said the company â€œdid not have anything to shareâ€ regarding the Garber rumours. He added: â€œWe havenâ€™t announced anything, and we donâ€™t have any plans to announce anything.â€
Suggestions that Garber was about to join Harrahâ€™s have been circulating for months, and gained new currency when they were repeated in a Sunday Times story last weekend in the UK.
Garber left Party back in May 2008 having helmed the firm through a tough period around the time of the enforced UIGEA-related exit from the US market in October 2006. He handed over control to current chief executive Jim Ryan.
I dunno … doesn’t sound like that much of a denial to me. But maybe … who knows?
