Oaklawn Racing Casino Resort has announced that Chris Ho has joined as the new vice president of marketing and member of the senior management team.
A University of Central Arkansas alumnus, Ho has 27 years of experience in advertising and marketing. He began his career as graphic designer and web developer, owned and operated his own web design business, FD Web Group Inc., for several years before eventually transitioning to the ad agency business. Ho is experienced in dealing advertising for a wide variety of enterprises, from tourism to auto dealerships to colleges to state governments.
Prior to joining Oaklawn, Ho was the vice president and director of Digital and Interactive Services at CJRW, a Little Rock advertising agency. In his five years there, he worked closely with Oaklawn, making him a natural choice for the position.
Ho is taking over the position that was vacated in May by Joan Botts, who left the company to join Choctaw Casino and Resort Durant in Oklahoma as the regional director of Marketing.
