Executive shake-up at NJSEA racing


East Rutherford, NJ (Sports Network) - Dennis Robinson, president and CEO of the New Jersey Sports and Exposition Authority, announced on Thursday the hiring of Lennon Register as senior vice president of racing.

Register, chief financial officer for Pennwood Racing, replaces Dennis Dowd, who fills the vacant position of senior vice president of legal and governmental affairs.

"Dennis Dowd's unique combination of legal, governmental and racing experience make him the perfect choice for this important Authority post," stated NJSEA Chairman Carl Goldberg. "Among the highest priorities for Mr. Dowd will be the siting and opening of our remaining Off Track Wagering facilities. Dennis will also bring us leadership on the multitude of legal and legislative issues that face the Authority on a daily basis."

Register will supervise the operations of Meadowlands Racetrack and Monmouth Park, both owned by the Authority. Register previously served the Sports and Exposition Authority from 1985 to 1998. When he left Mr. Register was Assistant Vice President of Financial Operations.

Register will assume his new position in August after nine years at Pennwood Racing. Pennwood is a partnership between Penn National Gaming and Greenwood Racing which operates Freehold Raceway and has licenses to operate four off- track wagering locations in New Jersey.
