    LAS VEGAS, April 26 /PRNewswire/ -- Jeff Victor, former president and
 chief operating officer for On Stage Entertainment, has been selected as
 the new leader of the Fremont Street Experience, downtown Las Vegas'
 signature entertainment and gaming attraction. Victor's professional
 experience includes operations and entertainment positions in the theme
 park and casino industries, with stints in New Orleans, Biloxi, Atlantic
 City and Reno before taking a position as Vice President and General
 Manager with Star Trek -- The Experience at the Las Vegas Hilton in 1999.
 During his five-plus years with On Stage Entertainment, Victor played an
 integral role in returning the company and its primary stage product,
 Legends in Concert, to profitability.
     "Jeff's background in managing day-to-day activities in a large-scale
 entertainment operation combined with his impressive leadership abilities
 and broad experience in and around the gaming industry, made him the ideal
 candidate and the choice of the Fremont Street Experience board," said Don
 Snyder, chairman of the Fremont Street Experience Board of Managers.
     The board formed a search committee after Joe Schillaci announced his
 retirement after serving just over two years as president of the Fremont
 Street Experience.
     "I feel very good having Jeff Victor as my successor," said Schillaci,
 who served on the search committee. "There was a lot of interest in this
 position, and Jeff clearly stood out as the best candidate for the job."
     Victor officially started at the Fremont Street Experience on April 24,
 2006. He is the fourth person to serve as the organization's president
 since its inception in 1993.
     "The Fremont Street Experience is a unique attraction in the Las Vegas
 landscape, and I look forward to working with the member casinos in further
 building recognition for the venue and the Viva Vision shows," said Jeff
 Victor. "I've experienced many different environments in cities around the
 country, and there is simply nothing else like the Fremont Street
     Victor takes over during a dynamic period in the downtown venue's
 history. Two of the member casinos, the Golden Nugget and the Lady Luck,
 are in the midst of major renovations while two new restaurants,
 Hennessey's Tavern and Mickie Finnz Fish House, opened on the first floor
 of the Fremont Street Experience parking structure in March.
     "The search committee was impressed with Jeff's gaming experience and
 management abilities across multiple markets," said Mike Darley, general
 manager of Fitzgeralds Las Vegas and chairman of the Fremont Street
 Experience search committee. "His multi-faceted background should serve him
 well through the planned construction, renovation and transition happening
 along Fremont Street."
