Scott Sibella, who recently stepped down as president of MGM Grand, was named president and COO of Resorts World Las Vegas, a Genting property set to open in 2020. He exited MGM Resorts with a buyout connected to the MGM 2020 program that promises to reduce costs in the company.
Although Sibella signed a one-year non-compete, he was able to join Resorts World because it is currently not operating and is set to open in 2020. The $4 billion project will include 3,000 rooms and suites, as well as meeting space and unique non-gaming amenities.
Sibella, a graduate of the University of Nevada, Las Vegas, joined MGM in 2010 to run the Mirage before moving to MGM Grand.
