MIAMI — Two executives with the Seminole Tribe of Florida and Seminole Gaming were killed in a plane crash on their way back from a business meeting, the tribe said Friday.
Killed were Robert F. Moreland of Miramar, the vice president of information technology operations, and passenger Michael Villanueva of Boca Raton, director of facility coordination.
The two were returning from a meeting with a business vendor in Montgomery, Ala., Thursday afternoon when the accident happened.
A search identified the wreckage Friday.
Moreland is credited with creating the information technology network for Seminole Gaming. Villanueva played a huge role in the design and construction of the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Hollywood, as well as with the expansions of casinos in Tampa, Coconut Creek and Immokalee.
