Caesars Entertainment is appointing a veteran of the Las Vegas Strip as its new chief executive. : The casino giant named Tony Rodio as CEO Tuesday. He'll replace Mark Frissora, who guided the company through bankruptcy reorganization after joining Caesars in 2015. The change in leadership comes two months after billionaire investor Carl Icahn disclosed a large stake in the casino and began pushing for fundamental changes. The company, which operates more than 35 casinos in the U.S., emerged from bankruptcy protection in late 2017, but it's been struggling since.
