Scott Kreeger, who formerly was given the impossible job of turning around the struggling Revel casino hotel in Atlantic City, has been named the new president of SLS Las Vegas. Kreeger replaces Rob Oseland, who is joining former Wynn Las Vegas President Andrew Pascal to develop a resort on the Las Vegas Strip across from Encore. The development partnership also includes Australian billionaire James Packer and investment firm Oaktree Capital Management.
“Working with Andrew on his new project enables me to further my passion for developing and operating unique resort destinations,” Oseland said.
The 1,620-room SLS Las Vegas is owned by Stockbridge Real Estate and Los Angeles-based sbe Entertainment, owned by Sam Nazarian. It has a 56,000-square-foot casino with almost 800 slot machines, 74 table games and a William Hill sports book.
Prior to Revel, Kreeger’s career included stints at MGM Mirage and Station Casinos in Vegas. He was the first general manager of Station Casinos’ Red Rock Resort.
Sam Nazarian called Kreeger “an extremely gifted leader.”
