Maddox Named CEO at Wynn Resorts

With the resignation of Steve Wynn from his positions at Wynn Resorts as a result of sexual harassment allegations, Matt Maddox has added the title of chief executive officer to his president role to lead the company. Boone Wayson, a longtime Wynn board member, has taken over as non-executive chairman of the board.

Maddox, 42, joined Wynn Resorts in 2002, when Steve Wynn was building his new company following the sale of Mirage Resorts to MGM. Maddox served in a variety of roles, spending some time in Macau, being appointed chief financial officer and finally becoming president in late 2013.

Maddox is from Mena, a small town in Arkansas. He studied at Southern Methodist University and worked for Park Place (later Caesars) Entertainment before joining Wynn.
