Marina Bay Sands (MBS) announced in late August that it was making changes to its executive leadership team. According to a statement from the Las Vegas Sands Corp., which operates the Singapore property, Managing Director George Tanasijevich would focus on local and international expansion, concentrating on new development opportunities in the region as the parent’s managing director of global development. Andrew MacDonald (l.) and Paul Town would oversee most day-to-day operations at MBS.
Tanasijevich remains involved in MBS’ legal and compliance and government-related matters, as well as the ongoing US$3.3 billion expansion of the integrated resort.
MacDonald, MBS’ corporate senior vice president and chief casino officer, is now in charge of all gaming operations. Town, who joined the company in November 2019, is responsible for all non-gaming operations in his role as senior vice president of resort operations.
Together, the pair hold “joint responsibility for the day-to-day operational and administrative functions of Marina Bay Sands,” the company said. It said the changes will help to “enable the future success of the property and maximize our new development opportunity in Singapore.”
