“I am extremely proud and excited for Scott to join our executive management team at the highest level,” said Dario Zulich, owner of SWSE. “Scott brings the experience, energy and passion needed for the further development and execution of the strategy to achieve our vision. His management style is the opposite of mine, therefore complementary. I am more confident than ever that SWSE now has the perfect leadership mix to drive us to the next level of success.”

“This project has the potential to change the entertainment landscape for the entire community and I am excited to get to work, roll up my sleeves with the team and build SWSE into the potential it has,” said Lund. “This is an unparalleled opportunity, something that has never been seen before. We are looking at co-locating an event centre as part of an entertainment district sparking an entire development. It will include the new casino resort, new hotels, convention centre space, restaurants, all-weather field house, motor sports park and the relocated Carmichael Arena, all this while diversifying the economy and strengthening our quality of life.”
