The head of a West Virginia casino company can now run the three Trump casinos in Atlantic City.

The New Jersey Casino Control Commission granted preliminary approval Wednesday to Robert Griffin to serve as CEO of Trump Entertainment Resorts. The company recently emerged from its third bankruptcy.

Griffin will replace current CEO Mark Juliano.

Griffin is president and CEO of MTR Gaming Group Inc., which owns casinos in West Virginia, Pennsylvania and Ohio. A Trump Entertainment spokesman says Griffin is expected to leave MTR and start his new job within a few weeks.

The company owns the Trump Taj Mahal Casino Resort, Trump Plaza Hotel and Casino, and Trump Marina Hotel Casino.
