Caesars Entertainment's Dean McBride's career has taken him from Alaska to the Gulf of Mexico. By David McKee
Corvallis, Oregon, in the Klamath Valley, in 1961. [Graduated from] the home of the fighting Beavers, Oregon State University. Directly after college, a family member had a business starting in Ketichkan, and part of it was charitable gaming. So I went into gaming immediately after college. From there I become involved in what you and I know as casinos. I moved to Reno, Nevada, in 1990. I spent about three and a half years in Alaska, and spent some time in Portland, Oregon, and relocated to Reno.
