Sinatra Out at Wynn

Kim Sinatra is the latest Wynn Resorts executive to depart in the wake of the sex scandal that forced Steve Wynn, Wynn Resorts chairman and founder, to resign and sell his interest in the company. Sinatra stepped down as executive vice president and general counsel for the company, which informed the Securities and

Exchange Commission that Sinatra has “ceased to serve” in those positions in a one-sentence revelation.

Sinatra had been elevated to the No. 2 position in the company following Wynn’s departure, second only to CEO Matt Maddox. But her ascendancy was always shadowed by the company’s failure to reveal the multimillion-dollar settlement made by Wynn Resorts (via a third corporate entity) with a woman who claimed to have been harassed by the casino magnate to the Massachusetts Gaming Commission, as part of the company’s licensing investigation for its Boston Harbor casino. As general counsel, this settlement would have fallen under Sinatra’s oversight.

Sinatra has denied that she knew anything about a rape allegation against Wynn, as alleged by his former wife, Elaine Wynn.
