David Tsai Named CEO of Crown Perth

Australia’s Crown Resorts has announced that David Tsai, a longtime executive at MGM Resorts International, will be the new CEO of its Crown Perth casino.

According to a company release, Tsai will begin his tenure “later this year”—his appointment is still subject to regulatory approval.

Prior to taking the top job at Crown Perth, Tsai most recently served as president of MGM’s Midwest division. He also previously held other senior-level positions at various MGM properties.

It’s been a turbulent 12 months for Crown, as the operator has been deemed unsuitable for casino licensure and Victoria, New South Wales and Western Australia. These licenses were reinstated conditionally, however, upon Crown’s sale to U.S.-based Blackstone Group earlier this year.

In a statement, Crown CEO Ciarán Carruthers said, “As CEO of Crown Perth, David will lead our remediation action plan in Western Australia and work with the Crown Perth board and the newly appointed independent monitor, Paul Steel, to implement the recommendations of the Perth Casino Royal Commission.”
