Tribal Chairman Matthew Wesaw of the Pokagon Band of Potawatomi Indians was recently named by Global Gaming Business Magazine as one of its 25 people to watch in 2020. Global Gaming Business Magazine has annually named its 25 person “dream team” for nearly 20 years.

As Tribal Council Chairman and President of the Pokagon Gaming Authority, Mr. Wesaw has oversight responsibility for the Pokagon Band’s Four Winds Casino resorts with locations in South Bend, Indiana, and three locations in Michigan in Dowagiac, Hartford, and New Buffalo.  Four Winds is currently in the midst of a significant expansion of its South Bend Casino resort that includes a 23-story hotel tower, convention areas, bars and restaurants, and a spa.

Mr. Wesaw noted: “The expansion project will turn us from a bigger small property to a larger mid-sized one.  We are excited about this and we still have space to expand again, but it is also important that we don’t over-build. With the way gaming is going online, brick-and-mortar facilities could be in trouble down the road.”
