Mutti will leave his post at Great Canadian’s Hastings Racecourse & Slots property to head up the new casino.

The casino is due to open this winter and it is the first of its kind in Canada, it will be a rebranding and renovation of the Boulevard Casino in Coquitlam, BC. As the new executive director Mutti will be overseeing operations and future development.

The Great Canadian Gaming Corporation’s senior vice president Peter Goudron said, “We have a highly engaged team at our Boulevard Casino that is committed to the very significant transformation required to implement the new Hard Rock Casino brand.

It’s a tremendous undertaking — much more than a simple renovation — and Raj will play a pivotal role with our current team to ensure the success of this transformation.”

Mutti has spent the last 15 years working for Great Canadian’s Hastings Racecourse & Slots property. He is widely recognised as one of the youngest and most successful general managers of any major racetrack in North America.

Mutti said that he is now looking forward “to bringing the new Hard Rock Casino Vancouver to the regional marketplace and making the casino an iconic entertainment destination.”
