Juliano to Head Sands Bethlehem

Las Vegas Sands Corporation has squelched months of speculation in the industry and in the press that its Pennsylvania property, Sands Casino Resort Bethlehem, was for sale, announcing a plan to commit substantial future investment in the property.

Putting an exclamation point on its commitment to Bethlehem, LVS announced that longtime gaming executive Mark Juliano will be the new president of Sands Bethlehem. Juliano will take over for Douglas Niethold, who has served as interim president since original president Bob DeSalvio resigned last year to join Wynn Resorts in Massachusetts.

Juliano most recently was executive vice president of the operator’s Marina Bay Sands property in Singapore. He has a long history in East Coast gaming operations, having most recently served as CEO of Trump Entertainment Resorts in Atlantic City. He also was president of Caesars Atlantic City and chairman of the Atlantic City Convention and Visitors Authority. Juliano also served as president of Caesars Palace in Las Vegas.
