New President for Wynn Macau

New President for Wynn Macau

Wynn Resorts Chief Operating Officer Gamal Aziz has been named president of Wynn Macau in a move that signals the company’s increasing focus on its US billion expansion into the booming Cotai resort district.

Aziz, who replaces Steve Wynn in the position, will remain COO of the parent company, while Wynn, as Wynn Resorts’ chairman and chief executive officer, will continue as chairman and CEO of the Hong Kong-listed Macau subsidiary.

Aziz rejoined his former boss last January after several years at Las Vegas Strip rival MGM Resorts International, where he served in a number of top roles, the last as president and CEO of MGM Hospitality, the division responsible for developing and operating luxury hotels around the world under the Bellagio, MGM Grand and Skylofts brands. Prior to joining MGM he was senior vice president at Bellagio, the Strip flagship of Wynn’s Mirage Resorts, which was bought out in 2000 by MGM, then known as MGM Grand Inc.
