Spiegel, Poster Step Down at Wynn

Marilyn Winn Spiegel resigned last month as president of Wynn Las Vegas and Encore to work on design and development of company projects, including proposed resorts in Philadelphia and Boston, Wynn Resorts has announced.

“In Marilyn’s two-year tenure with us, our Las Vegas resorts have achieved their highest combined revenues,” Steve Wynn, chairman and CEO of Wynn Resorts, said in a statement. “This realignment of our most valuable resource, our people, will help put our company on the path for financial growth in Las Vegas, as well as outside of Las Vegas, for years to come.”

Before joining Wynn, Spiegel was a senior vice president and general manager of Bally’s Las Vegas, Planet Hollywood and the Rio for Caesars Entertainment. Previously, she served as corporate vice president of human resources for the gaming giant.

Wynn named Maurice Wooden, former chief operating officer of Wynn Las Vegas and Encore, as Speigel’s successor. Timothy Poster, who served as executive vice president of strategy and development for Wynn Resorts, was named chief operating officer, but resigned shortly afterwards. No reason was given by Wynn Resorts, and a spokesman wouldn’t confirm reports that licensing problems were Poster’s undoing.
