This highly regarded award, which brings global recognition to the exceptional women in the gaming industry, celebrates those that are champions of stellar customer service experiences.

Under Dale’s leadership, Foxwoods revitalized its training platform with a spotlight on team member recognition, engagement and retention, offering greater access to trainings and advanced communication channels.

“To say managing a resort casino with 6,000 team members is a big undertaking would be an understatement, but Dale does so with great efficiency and effectiveness,” said Rodney Butler, Foxwoods Resort Casino’s Interim CEO and Chairman of the Mashantucket Pequot Tribal Nation. “Dale continues to be a driving force behind Foxwoods’ continued guest service transformation, setting industry benchmarks and breaking the mold for exemplary guest service.
