Golden Entertainment names two senior executives

30 October 2017

(PRESS RELEASE) -- Golden Entertainment, Inc., announced today the appointment of Ned Martin as Chief Administrative Officer and the appointment of Phyllis Gilland as General Counsel.

Ned Martin joins Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Blake Sartini, Chief Operating Officer Steve Arcana, Chief Financial Officer and Chief Strategy Officer Charles Protell, and Chief Legal Officer Sean Higgins on Golden's senior management team. In his new position, Mr. Martin will leverage his 23 years of experience in gaming and other industries to assist in the integration of the Company's four newly acquired properties with its existing businesses. He will also oversee Golden's Human Resources, Security, Information Technology, and Design and Construction departments.

"Ned is well-respected in the gaming industry and has deep ties throughout the Las Vegas community. I am pleased that he is joining our senior management team as we strengthen our organization and grow our business," Mr. Sartini said.

Mr. Martin previously served as Chief Operating Officer and Chief Financial Officer at American Casino & Entertainment Properties LLC (ACEP), which Golden acquired on 20 October 2017. The acquisition brought to Golden Entertainment three properties in Las Vegas, including the Stratosphere Casino, Hotel & Tower, Arizona Charlie's Decatur and Arizona Charlie's Boulder as well as the Aquarius Casino Resort in Laughlin.

At ACEP, Mr. Martin was responsible for the organization's operational and financial aspects and served on its Board of Directors. Prior to joining ACEP, he held senior level finance, strategic planning and development positions with Station Casinos, Silverton Casino, LLC, and Maloof Companies.

Phyllis Gilland will also join Golden Entertainment as Senior Vice President and General Counsel and will report to Sean Higgins, the Company's Chief Legal Officer. She previously served as Senior Vice President, General Counsel and Compliance Officer for ACEP as well as General Counsel and Chief Financial Officer for Taylor Construction Group Companies.

"Phyllis brings significant legal and compliance experience to our company, which will be important as we look to operate effectively here in Nevada, as well as, expand our presence in multiple jurisdictions," Mr. Sartini said. "Both Ned and Phyllis bring tremendous experience to our already talented executive team, and we are now well positioned to take on this significant growth as a result of this exciting transaction."
