Hobbies & Interests
As a man well-acquainted with working hard, nobody would think of Kevin Ortzman as a slack. “I’m used to working 75 hour weeks, but I’m also not the typical image of the man who works hard all day and doesn’t know how to play.”
Kevin’s professional life has seen him work as Regional President of Caesars Entertainment Corporation in Atlantic City, and he presently serves on the Board of Directors at the Casino Redevelopment Authority. Before his work with Caesars, Kevin was the Assistant General Manager and Regional CFO/VP of Finance at Harrah’s, and he founded and ran his own business – Prtzman & Associates – for 8 years.
In his spare time, Kevin is a devoted Oenophile, known by laymen as a wine aficionado. “I’m in a wine club that goes to Premiere Napa Valley annually. There we bid on the wine from the area, and the proceeds help the local vineyards.” In addition, Kevin is actually in the process of making his own wine with a local winemaker. But Kevin’s life isn’t just food, family, and wine; he’s passionate about staying healthy and keeping up with his fitness. “I don’t really have time for golf, though,” Kevin Laughs. “You have to do it a lot to get good, and I’m pretty competitive.”
Some other interests of Kevin’s are travel, boating, and having a great time enjoying life with the people he loves the most. “I’m not going to lie,” Kevin continues. “Sometimes slowing down can feel like I’m doing nothing — I’m used to working so much — but I know it’s a good and necessary thing, and I’m excited to share more of that with people.”
Kevin is happily married and has three daughters. “I’m so proud of my kids. They’re awesome people with a killer sense of passion.”
Kevin has his undergraduate degree in Business Studies from Stockton University and his MBA in Executive Management from the University of California, Los Angeles – The Anderson School of Management. In addition, Kevin is a Certified Public Accountant with the Nevada State Board of Accountancy and the California State Board of Accountancy.
