Melco Restructures Leadership

In a move to “optimize operating excellence,” Melco Resorts & Entertainment has replaced City of Dreams Property President Gabe Hunterton with current Studio City Property President David Sisk. In the corporate shuffle, City of Dreams Manila President Geoff Andres will relocate to Macau to take over at Studio City. And Kevin Benning, former vice president of gaming operations at City of Dreams Manila, has been promoted to senior vice president and chief operating officer at City of Dreams Manila.

Melco Resorts Chairman and CEO Lawrence Ho called the shakeup a “redeployment.”

“We are leveraging on key individuals who all have demonstrated their expertise in managing and delivering strong growth,” Ho said in a statement. “They have proven their innovative spirit in various geographical locations across the Melco group. We are confident that the cross-fertilization of new ideas and management initiatives will ensure that all our integrated resorts will continue to benefit from performance improvements.”
