|In America, the New Jersey Casino Control Commission has given Ivanka Trump final permission to serve on the Board of Directors at Trump Entertainment Resorts, which operates three casinos in Atlantic City.|
Trump is the daughter of the famous Donald and Ivana Trump and received temporary approval to serve on the Board in July pending the completion of an investigation into her background and finances, a standard practice for pending casino board members in the state.
'I'm very excited,' said the 26-year-old.
'I've been on the Board for several months now and this is an opportunity to continue to contribute. The company is at a point where we need to make a lot of important decisions and I bring a voice of a different generation and also a female voice to the debate.'
The former runway model also serves as Vice-President of Development and Acquisitions for Trump Organization LLC, which controls Trump hotels, real estate holdings and golf courses.
She graduated from the University of Pennsylvania's Wharton School, one of the nation's top business schools, and is also assuming a greater role on The Apprentice, the reality show on which her father fires someone each week.
