Andrew Economon left his role at the helm of the Downtown Grand in late February to deal with family matters, he and resort leadership confirmed this week.

Economon joined the downtown resort, operated by Las Vegas-based Fifth Street Gaming, in June 2022 following a career in gaming and hospitality properties near Sacramento, California.

There is a search underway for a new general manager, Fifth Street Gaming CEO Seth Schorr said via text on Tuesday, and daily operations continue through Assistant General Manager Eric Buksa and other property leaders.
