Ciarán Pearse Carruthers, Chief Operating Officer of Wynn Macau, will leave the group in September 2022 to become CEO of Australian game operator Crown Resorts Limited (Crown).
Crown Resorts today announced that Steve McCann has resigned as CEO of Crown Resorts and CEO of Crown Melbourne, and Carruthers will be appointed as CEO for probability approval in September and after the transition period.
Prior to joining Wynn Macau in February 2017, he was Senior Vice President and Director of Venetian and Plaza Operations at Sands China Limited in Southeast Asia, the Philippines, and the Pacific Islands of the United States.
“Carruthers is a highly regarded global gaming and hospitality executive with solid experience operating some of the world’s largest integrated luxury resorts and gaming facilities. He has over 30 years of experience in the crown. Bringing it, we’ve built a career with leading US gaming companies and integrated resort companies operating in some of the world’s most regulated gaming jurisdictions, “crowd added.
In a dispatch signed by Chairman Alan Zeman, Wynn Macau Limited said the former COO “had no disagreement with the board” that needed to draw the attention of shareholders.
