Rising Above – Samuel Dube

Samuel Dube


I have been with GCO since June 2008 after having started in the casino industry in Zimbabwe in 1996. My rise through the ranks from dealer-level was gradual but that allowed me to observe and learn a lot of things from different people.

Along the way, I have grown to fully appreciate the support system (fleet and shoreside) that is continuously evolving, thereby enabling us to better manage our operations. It also eases the pressure greatly knowing that there is always somebody to reach out to if the need arises.

I have had a lot of support from all levels over the years, but I would like to single out and thank Lee Stockdale for giving me the “kick in the pants” that I needed and pushing me to get out of my comfort zone.

One of my main focal points, going forward, will be to encourage and guide those with career aspirations, in the hope that they will also get opportunities to grow.
