Q the Applause: Bristol Places President & CEO

Bristol Updates, Hospitality

Q Casino is an entertainment hot spot that brings racing and casino gaming to their players in Iowa. With their current President & CEO retiring by the end of 2021, the Dubuque Racing Association retained Bristol to find their next executive. According to Board Chairman Kevin Lynch, their committee had “reached out to a couple other firms, but Bristol was by far the most responsive and professional company [they] spoke with.”

President Ben Farber spearheaded the President & CEO search with the help of Executive Recruiter Alexander Dodge. During the search process, they reached out to Alex Dixon, a former investment banker with eleven years’ experience as a gaming executive for MGM and Caesars Entertainment. Farber says, “Alex did an incredible job communicating his plan and vision for the role during the hiring process. His invaluable expertise in mergers and acquisitions, restructuring, and development will take Q Casino to the next level.”

In a recent LinkedIn post, Dixon shared, “Very humbled to join the Dubuque, Iowa community, Q Casino and the Dubuque Racing Association . . . I am excited to marry my love of business, entertainment, philanthropy and community development. Onward and upward!”
