Fourth Female Exec Joins MGM Board

Fourth Female Exec Joins MGM Board

MGM Resorts International has added Carnival Corp. executive Jan Swartz to the board of directors, the fourth woman to occupy a seat on one of the most diverse boards in corporate gaming.

Swartz brings to MGM a wealth of global experience in leisure travel as head of Carnival’s Princess Cruises and Carnival Australia divisions. She will be influential as well in decisions affecting the company’s key East Asia markets, having overseen the development of Carnival Japan, a marketing unit based in Tokyo, and the launch of the Majestic Princess, a cruise ship focused on the China market.

Twenty-five percent of MGM’s 12-member board is now female. That’s higher than the S&P 500 average and represents, from an industry perspective, a fairly distinct contrast with the rest of the Las Vegas big six, which count only eight women among their 57 directors.
