The former CEO of Mountaineer Racetrack & Casino is in charge of marketing the company’s surplus property in northern Hancock County.
The State Journal reports Ted Arneault will make about 1,300 acres of properties available for commercial and industrial development.
Arneault, who also served as the company’s chairman, says he’ll work with local municipalities Hancock County, state officials and private investors to bring business and industry to the area.
He says he believes energy, natural resource treatment and refinement, transportation and storage are resources for Hancock County markets.
Arneault added he has already been contacted by companies interested in the area, particularly by those servicing or supplying the natural gas processing industry.
