[separator headline=”h2″ title=”JEFF E. HARTMANN • Founder & Chief Executive Officer”]
With more than two decades in CFO, COO and CEO capacities, Jeff Hartmann has played a seminal role in the creation and development of the casino gaming industry in New England. His career spans the landmark casinos of Foxwoods and Mohegan Sun in Connecticut, Revel in Atlantic City and Mohegan Sun at Pocono Downs in Pennsylvania.
Jeff has worked closely with major Wall Street firms including Goldman Sachs, Citibank, Wells Fargo and Bank of America. As Chief Financial Officer of the Mohegan Tribal Gaming Authority, he played a pivotal role in securing $4-billion in public and private financing, including the only $1-billion syndicated bank credit facility for a Native American tribe. In 2013, he guided Revel Entertainment Group through a pre-packaged bankruptcy in 59 days.
Clients have benefited from his breadth of experience and expertise, including project finance, project feasibility and investment analysis, risk management, treasury, staffing and labor analysis, long term financial forecasting, SEC financial reporting and investor relations leadership. During his sixteen year tenure at Mohegan Sun, he directed the strategic planning, collaborated with the senior leadership team, created the company’s vision and maintained and preserved the Mohegan Sun core values.
Jeff has addressed wildly divergent opportunities along the way. From acquiring the WNBA Connecticut Sun franchise for the Mohegan Sun to leading the Mohegan Sun Executive team in developing the 2010 Master Plan as well as leading the acquisition team that acquired Pocono Downs racetrack and built a $300 million dollar hotel and casino.
Since founding The Hartmann Group, LLC in December 2012, Jeff Hartmann has served as President of the firm, which specializes in the real estate, hospitality and gaming industries. Today, Jeff and his associates at the Hartmann Group seek the next challenge.
It may come in the form of consulting for gaming owners, advising on real estate financing or hotel operation profitability. That next challenge may turn on 30+ years of financial acumen or the insights garnered from working with the elite finance and gaming professionals in the hospitality industry.
Jeff began his career as a Certified Public Accountant with PricewaterhouseCoopers, LLP, working from 1984 to 1991 in the Philadelphia and New York offices as a specialist in real estate and casinos.
Jeff has Key Gaming licenses in New Jersey, Connecticut and Pennsylvania. He earned his Bachelor of Arts from Rutgers University and earned a Certificate in Real Estate Development from New York University Schack Institute of Real Estate. He currently serves as the Chairman of the Board for the Ocean Breeze Management Company, LLC which operates the iconic Inn at Mystic. Jeff also volunteers his time to serve on the Board of Directors for the Connecticut Sports Foundation Against Cancer, Read to Grow and Fans 4 the Cure.
