“I’ve long admired Rush Street Gaming and its momentum in the casino industry,” Pettit said. “I look forward to collaborating with the amazing talent on the Rush Street teams and especially working with the HR leaders to take the people side of the business to a whole new level.

Rush Street Gaming chief executive Tim Drehkoff added: “Dawn is a proven leader in the gaming industry with a strong track record for developing and managing talent strategies, mentoring, and advocacy.

“As we prepare to open our fifth Rivers Casino in January 2023, located in Virginia’s Hampton Roads region, we’re excited to have Dawn join our growing team.”
