Cosmopolitan Hires CFO

Deutsche Bank, owner of the under-construction Cosmopolitan resort on the Las Vegas Strip, has hired Jeff Burge, the vice president of finance at the Palazzo and Venetian casinos, to be the new property’s chief financial officer, a source told the Las Vegas Review-Journal.

Burge is the second casino executive to be carried away from a rival by the Cosmopolitan. Burge’s new boss, CEO John Unwin, was formerly the general manager of Caesars Palace before resigning in July to join the Cosmopolitan. Unwin will take over his new position in October, while Burge has already begun work at the resort.

Deutsche Bank is still seeking to find an operator for the Cosmopolitan, as the bank is not in the business of running casinos, but Burge and Unwin will continue to oversee operations at the resort even if new management is found.
