Director Roger de Lima has been a pioneer within the casino industry both in Europe, USA and Australia. In the late 70’s, Roger was appointed Director of the newly designated “Salle Américaine” at the famous Casino de Monte Carlo, which at the time mainly catered to the French, Italian and other European markets. Roger introduced marketing initiatives offering a premium product, quality services and competitive incentive programs which rewarded customers for loyalty. Combined with the introduction of American style gaming, this lead to a substantial increase in repeat business from the United States and eventually the Middle East.
In 1984, Roger was approached by the Australian Northern Territory Government along with Sands of Alantic City and Aspinalls of London. A take over of the Mindl Beach Hotel Casino occurred when existing operators, Federal Hotels, were convinced to sell to the Anglo-American consortium. Roger was instrumental in devising strategies to open up the Asian Market offering a new blend of incentives. This lead to the entire Australasian casino industry following suit, as it came in line within various states. Over the next three decades, and what we see today in Australia, Singapore and Macau, has developed from Roger’s vision.
