LAS VEGAS (AP) -- Andy Choy has been fired as president and CEO of the financially struggling Riviera Casino & Hotel on the Las Vegas Strip.
Choy, who joined the Riviera as CEO in April 2011, declined to comment after he was terminated Friday.
Before landing at the Riviera, Choy worked for Las Vegas Sands Corp. in Las Vegas and Macau. He was named CEO of the Riviera in a reorganization that took place after owner Riviera Holdings Corp. emerged from bankruptcy in 2010.
In a related move, Noah Acres, senior vice president of gaming at the Riviera, resigned. The resort has lost three other top executives over the last year.
