MILWAUKEE (April 21, 2016) – After serving 14 years as General Manager of Potawatomi Hotel & Casino, Mike Goodrich has resigned his position. The Forest County Potawatomi Executive Council has named Hartford Shegonee to the position of General Manager/Chief Executive Officer effective today.

Shegonee most recently served as Vice Chairman of the Forest County Potawatomi’s Executive Council. He resigned from that position to take on the leadership role at Potawatomi Hotel & Casino.
