He has held a successful career in real estate, and chaired the successful development of Casino Rama. Upon opening, he climbed the corporate ladder to become Vice President of Corporate Affairs and Human Resources at Casino Rama. Ted has been an entrepreneur for over 13 years as a consultant, guest speaker, and retail business partner.
