Vice President, Market & Financial Analysis
Cameron Steinagel’s past experience makes him a valuable asset and resource for The Innovation Group and their clients. Cameron came to The Innovation Group in January 2011 with over 10 years of experience in the gaming industry, where he held many positions and responsibilities.
Based in the Orlando office, Cameron has been successful in a diverse set of projects for The Innovation Group, including feasibility studies, economic impact studies, ROI analysis, and operational reviews. Cameron has been trusted with some of the largest and most high-profile projects for clients such as Las Vegas Sands, MGM Resorts International, Melco International Development Limited, Boyd Gaming, Ontario Lottery & Gaming Corporation, Seneca Tribe and many other gaming operators, developers and governmental agencies. Cameron has most recently completed several projects in upstate New York and across the border in Ontario related to casino and hotel expansions, as well as various potential casino resort developments in Spain, Cyprus, and other European countries.
Prior to his work with The Innovation Group, Cameron was part of the development team at Boyd Gaming, tasked with many important duties for the $4.8B mixed-use Echelon project on the Las Vegas Strip. His duties included feasibility studies to determine size, scope, and viability of project components and earnings potential, project management over the site’s “featured” restaurants inclusive of hiring and managing consultants and identifying partners, and the initial planning and early development of the retail promenade. As the Echelon project wound down due to poor economic factors, Cameron worked at the Boyd corporate office where he performed due diligence efforts for all potential mergers, acquisitions, and expansions along with performing analysis for other strategic initiatives.
Subsequent to his work at Boyd Gaming, Cameron began his career as an internal auditor with MGM Resorts International in Las Vegas where he was able to gain knowledge and experience in gaming policies and procedures. Shortly thereafter, he graduated to a newly formed department tasked with initiating, implementing, and managing strategic initiatives under the Chief Financial Officer. These strategic initiatives included, but were not limited to, the integration of the Mandalay Bay acquisition, the restructuring of the company’s aviation department, and the research and due diligence efforts for the potential of adding wireless gaming devices to the casino offerings and their effect on in-house gaming.
Cameron enjoys watching and participating in various sports, as well as encouraging his four young daughters in their various sporting pursuits.
