Harrah's Entertainment, Inc. today announced that Jeffrey Pollack, vice president of sports and entertainment marketing for subsidiary Harrah's Operating Company, Inc., is taking on the added role of commissioner of the World Series of Poker, subject to the receipt of any necessary regulatory approvals.

"The World Series of Poker is a unique event in the gaming and sports industries and, as such, requires special oversight and management," said Ginny Shanks, Harrah's senior vice president of brand management. "Designating Jeffrey as commissioner will further empower him to develop a strong sense of community among our players, tournament organizers, event staff, media partners, sponsors, licensees, and corporate management team."

The World Series of Poker is televised exclusively on ESPN.
