As mentioned, Van Slooten will be taking over the role from Leise, who has been with Holland Casino for 39 years, starting as a Croupier. During his time, he has also been a Casino Manager of various locations, Regional Director and Chief Operations Officer, while also being Director of Operations, and Regional Casino Manager of the South-East region. 

Leise will remain with the company until 1 July 2025 for various strategic projects, while Van Slooten will start his Director of Operations role on 1 October of this year. 

Holland Casino CEO Petra de Ruiter said: “With Hans, we have found a worthy internal successor to Noël as director of operations. Hans has a lot of experience both inside and outside Holland Casino. His strength is that he is close to the people, both our guests and our employees.  

“In addition, I am extremely grateful to Noël for his years of dedication and commitment to Holland Casino."

Van Slooten commented: “It is a great honor to succeed Noël. I have great respect for his wonderful career, his commitment and inexhaustible drive for our beautiful company.  

“Although it will not always be easy to follow in his footsteps, I will take on my responsibilities with and for the operation with dedication. I look forward to meeting more colleagues in the branches and at the head office from October.” 

Leise added: “When you have worked for a great company like ours for almost 40 years, it is difficult to choose the right moment to pass the baton. After all, Holland Casino is such a part of my life that it cannot help but hurt a little.  

“I am happy that I can still be meaningful for the future of our company in a different way in the coming period. I have every confidence that Hans will fill the role of Director of Operations very well in his own way and I wish him every success with that.” 

In other appointment news, Metropolitan Gaming has announced that Mark Hands is taking up the role of Director of Food, Beverage & Hospitality in what is a newly created role for the company.

Back in June 2022, Leise spoke to Gambling Insider about his time so far at Holland Casino.
