Building one of the world’s top casinos
for Genting Group
When Genting Group - Resorts World New York (RWNY) sought to build the first racetrack casino in New York City, they hired Tusk Strategies to oversee all of the political, governmental, media, labor and community issues that would come with it.
That meant building a team to handle both government relations in Albany and community and public relations in New York City for one of the world’s largest gaming and hospitality operators.
RWNY was selected to build and operate the casino, and Tusk Strategies worked successfully to build strong relationships with local elected officials, community leaders, reporters, editorial boards, business associations, and civic groups.

Tusk Strategies was instrumental in helping us win the RFP, open our facility and navigate the political process.”Michael Levoff, Senior Vice President of Public Affairs, Genting Americas
