Travis Lunn has climbed the ladder at MGM Resorts for the past several years after stops at Mirage Resorts, Las Vegas Sands and Hard Rock Las Vegas. Most recently, Lunn was general manager of MGM Grand in Las Vegas and was able to get exposure to the many varied businesses that exist at an integrated resort. At Beau Rivage, Lunn plans to put into action his understanding of non-gaming amenities and the hotel operations. He talks about the people who have influenced his career and why he believes MGM Resorts is poised to become the most influential casino company in the industry. He spoke with GGB Publisher Roger Gros from his offices at the Beau Rivage in December.
