PinnaclePinnacle Entertainment board member John Giovenco, who served as the regional casino companys interim chief executive officer for five months, retired from his position last week.

The Las Vegas-based company made the announcement Friday.

Giovenco joined the Pinnacle board in 2003 and took part in many aspects concerning the companys growth.

After CEO Dan Lee resigned in November 2009, Giovenco stepped in and directed the company until the hiring of current CEO Anthony Sanfilippo in March 2010.

John has made significant contributions to the board’s decisions during his tenure, Pinnacle Chairman Richard Goeglein said in a statement.
