Revel Entertainment CEO Kevin DeSanctis rolls the dice on new Revel resort

One longtime gaming-industry consultant believes Morgan Stanley hit a home run by going to DeSanctis. In describing DeSanctis' strengths, Michael Pollock, managing director of Linwood, N.J.-based Spectrum Gaming Group, recalled how, in the early 1960s, an executive with England's Decca Records passed on signing the Beatles because he believed guitar-based groups had become passe among pop-music fans.

"Kevin is the anti-Decca Records ," said Pollock, whose consulting firm has had Revel as a client. "One of the things that has always struck me about Kevin is he has the tendency and ability to see things other don't.

"In an industry that is predicated on following the crowd and following conventional wisdom, he stands alone. Kevin is clearly ... a visionary."
