Cherokee Nation taps Red Square for casinos, hotels


Cherokee Nation Entertainment (CNE) has named Red Square Agency as its agency of record. Headquartered in Catoosa, OK, CNE is the gaming and hospitality arm of the Cherokee Nation. CNE owns and operates Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Tulsa, seven Cherokee Casinos, four hotels, two golf courses and many other retail operations in northeast Oklahoma.

According to Mary Galbraith, senior director of corporate marketing for CNE, “The decision was unanimous, Red Square’s creative abilities and experience in gaming and destination marketing make it an excellent fit for CNE as we take a more aggressive stance with our casino marketing. We could not be more pleased or more excited about this partnership.”

CNE is a tribal corporation managed by a board of directors who are appointed by the principal chief of the Cherokee Nation and approved by the Tribal Council’s 17 members. 100% of its profits go to the Cherokee people, either through reinvestment in growing businesses and creating jobs, or through services to its citizens.
