Strip Veteran Sibella to Head Resorts World LV

Genting Group has appointed former MGM Grand President Scott Sibella to head the company’s Resorts World Las Vegas mega-resort under construction on the Las Vegas Strip.

Located on 87 acres where the Stardust once stood and priced at an estimated $4 billion at full build-out, the Asian-themed Resorts World is slated to open with 3,400 hotel rooms at the end of 2020. It will be the Strip’s first ground-up resort since the Cosmopolitan debuted a decade ago, and carries with it high hopes for a revitalization of the sparsely developed north end of the famed neon way.

Sibella ran MGM Grand for eight years before departing in February, shortly after owner MGM Resorts International launched a corporate-wide cost-cutting program targeting upper management, among other areas.

He also served under MGM as president and chief operating officer of the Mirage and Treasure Island on the Strip and is chairman of Las Vegas Events, the private events-scheduling arm of the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority.
