There is a new boss at Ocean Casino Resort and she wants you to know she earned the job.

Atlantic City's Ocean Casino Resort has hired a female CEO, one of a small handful of women leading casinos or casino companies nationwide.

Terry Glebocki was named CEO Tuesday morning after serving in the job in an interim capacity since August.

She has more than 30 years of financial management experience, and recently served as the casino's chief financial officer. Glebocki previously worked for Tropicana Entertainment and Trump Entertainment Resorts and was chief financial officer at Ocean’s predecessor, Revel.

Glebocki told the Associated Press she’s ready for the challenges of her new job.

“I work hard,” she said. “Nothing’s ever been given to me; I earned it.”

Ocean is the only one of Atlantic City's nine casinos to currently have a woman CEO.

Karie Hall is vice president and general manager at Bally’s, technically making her second in command, although she is in charge of all operations at Bally’s. Audrey Oswell was the first chief executive in Atlantic City, leading Resorts from 2002 to 2006.

Glebocki says maintaining profitability and increasing revenue are her top goals.
