Del Newman – Business Consultant

NewmanDel Newman was enticed to come to Nevada and manage what was then a relatively small casino which had been purchased by a friend of Newman’s for $90,000.00. The casino, now known as the Golden Nugget, Laughlin was managed by Newman who also carried out extensive remodeling and expansion of the property. Newman retained this position for five years after which the club was sold for $20,000,000.00. Following disposal of the Golden Nugget property, Newman was hired as a consultant at different times for various casinos. Ultimately, Newman was hired by Don Laughlin to serve as general manager of the Riverside Resort and Casino at Laughlin, Nevada where he has remained for 30 years, managing a very successful casino. He was one of the original investors and a director of WHP.  His advice and direction helped solidify its success.
