“Economon’s industry experience spans over 20 years in executive positions around the globe, with exceptional success in food and beverage, entertainment, gaming operations, property development and management, all of which Downtown Grand is known for,” a statement from the company read.

Downtown Grand added that Economon is active in the community, serving on various boards to support school districts and foundations along with the Chambers of Commerce. He was previously a board member of the Epicurean Charitable Foundation.

“I couldn’t be happier with my decision to join Downtown Grand and am truly humbled that I was asked to lead this outstanding team,” said Economon. “I look forward to all that we will accomplish through the end of this year and all that is to come in 2023 and beyond.”
