Subsequently the Casino told the ABR that they do not comment on personnel matters.
Scott Varley: Gone From RealtyUSA
The headline in the Albany Business Review announced that “RealtyUSA Ends Business Relationship with Scott Varley”. Readers of this blog may remember that Mr. Varley’s face appeared on at least one billboard at an entrance to the city. He had worked for RealtyUSA for twenty-seven years.
Al Picci, President and General Manager, would not discuss the “separation” with the ABR telling them that “It’s a private matter.”
Mr. Varley told the ABR that the decision was mutual and that it was the right move for him. When asked about his future plans he told them, “When I know, I will let you know.”
According to the ABR, Varley and his “team” had about $90 million in sales last year which was the most of any team in the region.
The ABR described Mr. Varley as “a natural showman and self promoter.”
