del Lago Resort and Casino's general manager is leaving

The del Lago Resort & Casino will need to look for a new manager.

A statement from that Seneca County resort says that Executive Vice President and general manager Jeff Babinski, who has led the operation since it began a couple of years ago, is moving back to the Midwest. He says that he and his family miss their friends, family and the Midwest, and his last day at del Lago will be March 31st.

Babinski says he is proud of what they have accomplished and is certain del Lago will continue on a successful path. He says he is working with management to help identify his successor.

The Chief Operating Officer of JNB Gaming, which manages del Lago, Aaron Gomes, says that they are disappointed Babinski is leaving but understands the decision to move back west with his family. Gomes says Babinski has "achieved some incredible accomplishments and has established a strong team that will continue to build on his successes."

Gomes says they got the news at the end of February, and have embarked on a nationwide search for a successor.
