Andrew MacDonald has stepped down as the chief casino officer for Las Vegas Sands Corp. and Sands China. MacDonald has been with LVS for more than a decade, and is considered one of the most analytical minds in the gaming business.
Just last year, MacDonald was given responsibility for running Marina Bay Sands, as Managing Director George Tanasijevich turned his attention to local and international expansion.
After starting as a dealer at Wrest Point Casino in Hobart, Tasmania, he advanced quickly until being appointed a regulator in Queensland. Later, he worked for Genting, Crown and Jupiter’s Gold Coast, now the Star Gold Coast. He later joined investment banking firm Macquarie Capital as managing director and co-global head before joining Marina Bay Sands in 2010 and then the corporate role at Las Vegas Sands two years later.
