The CEO of Rush Street Gaming, owner of the Schenectady casino being built on Mohawk Harbor, will deliver the keynote address at October’s Center for Economic Growth meeting.

Greg Carlin will speak on Oct. 20 at Proctors during the center’s annual member meeting. Carlin co-founded the Chicago-based Rush Street Gaming, LLC, which owns and operates three casinos. They are in Pittsburgh, Philadelphia and Des Plaines, Illinois. Its latest project is the Rivers Casino and Resort, which is located on Mohawk Harbor along Erie Boulevard and is slated to open in early 2017.

In a press release, Carlin said the Schenectady casino will be an economic driver for the entire Capital Region, creating more than 1,000 new jobs and generating tax revenue.

Carlin, a Chicago native, worked as an investment banker before getting into the gaming industry.

The Center for Economic Growth is the regional economic development organization for the greater Capital Region and New York’s Tech Valley, according to a press release.

The group’s annual meeting is expected to draw more than 300 business, government, academic and community leaders. In addition to Carlin’s address, the meeting will include remarks from the chair of the organization’s board of directors and others.
