MGM Names Mitchell HR Exec

MGM Resorts International has announced the promotion of Allison Smith Mitchell to vice president of regional human resources business partnerships. In her new role based at Beau Rivage in Biloxi, Mississippi, she will oversee regional HR operations while also providing strategic direction and leadership.

Mitchell will partner with the HR Center of Excellence to establish short- and long-term people strategies and goals for MGM’s regional properties, while also championing company culture and the employee value proposition.
