The purpose of this research was to examine the managerial and finance roles of casino controllers. Controllers were surveyed and interviewed about the current state of their role within their companies. A survey was given to 60 casino controllers attending the casino controllers' conference at the Monte Carlo Resort in Las Vegas on March 16, 2000. Interviews were conducted with five casino controllers to obtain qualitative information that could not be obtained through the questionnaire. The results provide detailed information on the role behavior of casino controllers and their contribution to organizational goal attainment.
