Two former executives with Las Vegas Sands’ gaming operations in Asia have joined Macau casino operator SJM.

Benjamin Toh and Daniel Shim have been named chief operating officer for finance and development and chief corporate affairs officer, respectively, according to a report by Macau News Agency citing an internal company memo from SJM Chairwoman Daisy Ho.

In his new role, Toh will be in charge of budgeting, risk management, cage, treasury, investor relations, insurance and procurement, MNA reported. Shim’s responsibilities will include human resources, staff training and development, staff relations, internal corporate communications and community engagement strategies.

Toh served as CFO of Sands China, LVS’ Macau operating subsidiary, from 2010 to 2016. Shim was LVS’ senior vice president of human resources-Asia from 2007 to 2010.

Their appointments come amid a restructuring of SJM’s top management as the company gears up for the debut of its Grand Lisboa Palace resort complex on Cotai later this year. Recent moves include the appointment of Frank McFadden as COO for gaming & hospitality, Bernard Yip as president of business development, Paul Hung as president of security, surveillance and ESG, and Arnaldo Ho as president of international business development.
