Pankaj Achari

Assistant Casino Manager

I started my career with GCO in 2007. My journey in the hospitality industry began in 2003 when I started my first journey onboard the cruise ships. This was the place where I saw a casino for the very first time ever as a Trainee Dealer and where I developed a strong foundation in customer service and in the casino industry. In 2007, I embarked on a new chapter with Carnival GCO as a Casino Dealer- 3. From the moment I joined Carnival, I felt a sense of belonging and purpose that resonated with me, inspiring me to commit to this vibrant community. With the unwavering support and guidance of my supervisors and managers, I steadily progressed to the present role of Assistant Casino Manager. Along this journey, I’ve had the privilege of crossing paths with incredible individuals who have played a significant role in shaping my career and personal growth. I am sincerely grateful for the opportunities and experiences that have brought me to where I am today.


I am grateful to every single member of my team including my leaders for their support, guidance, and trust as it has been instrumental in my growth and contribution. Thank you for fostering an environment where I feel empowered to excel. I would like to express my deepest gratitude for the profound impact my mentors and leaders have had on my professional growth and development. It is their solid commitment to excellence that sets a standard, a perfect example which motivates us all to strive for perfection and success.
