ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. (AP) — The new CEO of the three Trump casinos in Atlantic City will take over as head of the Casino Association of New Jersey.

Robert Griffin’s tenure with the industry trade group will begin Nov. 15, the same day he starts his new job with the Trump casinos.

Griffin is replacing Mark Juliano as head of Trump Entertainment and of the association.

The association is expected to play a key role in shaping and implementing Gov. Chris Christie’s plans to revitalize the nation’s second-largest gambling resort.

Griffin is leaving West Virginia-based MTR Gaming Group.
