Salvador Ambriz is the Director of Casino Marketing for Eagle Mountain Casino. He has been with the casino for 16 years and describes how he was able to grow his career with Eagle Mountain Casino. Ambriz attended a job fair in 2006 and was hired on the spot by the Marketing department.
“I started working as a Summit Club representative, and the Summit Club Manager was William Garfield, who is now a member of the Tribal Council. Seeing as I was trying to get more involved with marketing and loved being out in the front with guests instead of the back, he allowed me to be involved with the slot tournaments. Next, I was offered the Supervisor position and was involved with data and player development. Then, I became the Marketing Coordinator dealing with the same duties but more of the digital side and social media. Recently I was promoted to Director of Casino Marketing, which handles the casino hosts, player development, promotions, and anything that has to do with players and casino marketing”, said Ambriz.
