McKenzie left the Grand Casino Biloxi when Harrah’s acquired the property in 2005. He resigned from his position at the Isle of Capri last week.

“I am pleased that I have been selected to take charge at this time, and I am ready to help take Hard Rock Biloxi to the next level, McKenzie said. “All of the pieces for success going forward are now in place. The property looks great, the staff is second to none, and the service levels are outstanding.”
