Isle Moving Corporate Headquarters From Biloxi

Because of Hurricane Katrina, the Isle of Capri is moving its corporate headquarters.

Isle President Tim Hinkley told WLOX News his Biloxi based company can't attract key talent to the area right now, and it can't afford to shut down its main offices every time a storm threatens the gulf.

So Hinkley said it's in the best interest of the Isle to move its 150 corporate employees to another city.

Where the Isle moves to hasn't been announced yet. It's important to note that the corporate decision will not impact the Isle's Biloxi casino. It will be rebuilt.

The Isle does have plans to open a regional headquarters in the Biloxi area. The Isle of Capri is the only casino with a corporate office in Mississippi.
