Gambler Management LP (“Gambler”) is a privately held investment firm responsible for managing the business assets of the Gambler First Nation. Gambler is forecasted to generate superior returns from private equity-like investments including existing operating companies and land development. The Board’s focus is to ensure existing ventures are profitable and that additional acquisitions are profitable, sustainable and leverage synergies between businesses. The longer-term vision involves opportunities to diversify the investment portfolio both geographically and across business sectors.

Reporting to the Board of Directors, the Chief Operating Officer, Civil Construction Division will primarily focus on integrating the new acquisitions into MacKinley-Clark Paving Ltd. and drive growth through the individual businesses and combined Civil Construction Division that also includes Odanah Truck Line Inc.
