Allie Evangelista is the President of Hard Rock Hotel and Casino Bristol, and leads by the guiding principles, “the key to success is to put your heart in everything you do, always do the right thing, care about others, and have fun.”
A proud Brazilian, Allie came to the U.S. shortly after graduating from college. Having to start from scratch, her first job was as a hotel housekeeper. Her tenacity would pay off in 2006 when she joined the gaming industry as an Assistant Slot Operations Manager in Missouri. Allie would continue to climb becoming Director of Casino Operations and then Vice President of Casino Operations at an Iowa casino in 2014. Five years later, she would become the Vice President and General Manager of the Hollywood Gaming and Racetrack property in Ohio. Allie’s most recent position was Vice President and General Manager of the Hollywood Casino Perryville in Maryland.
Outside of the office, Allie loves exploring and immersing herself in diverse cultures with her husband of 21 years, Fabio, who she met during an internship at Walt Disney World in Orlando. They also love spending time with their “fur babies” Sophie, Dexter, and Olivia.
