Tag: Craig Neilsen
Craig Neilsen spent parts of three decades building Ameristar Casinos, Inc., the majority of which was accomplished after he was rendered a quadriplegic in a 1985 car accident.
Yet, the creation of a multibillion-dollar hotel-casino corporation will be just part of his legacy.
Neilsen, founder, chairman and CEO of Ameristar, died at age 65 in 2006.
Three years earlier, he established the Craig H. Neilsen Foundation. The philanthropic organization is dedicated to funding programs supporting spinal cord injury research and rehabilitation.
