Frank Chesky, Vice President and General Counsel, Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Atlantic City

An accomplished attorney with almost 20 years of legal and business experience, Frank has practiced law in both the private and corporate sectors representing diverse clients in the technology, regulated energy and manufacturing industries on matters ranging from intellectual property to complex commercial transactions. Frank has been married to his husband, Sean, for 10 years. They have two Siberian cats, Stewie and Mila. Aside from a failed attempt or two at a chicken dance or Macarena at weddings — not a pretty sight — Frank has never danced before. Nevertheless, he’s ready for the challenge, as he believes it is critically important to ensure that those less fortunate in our society are cared for in a dignified way. It shows the true character of society when we all do what we can to lift each other up.
