One of the biggest, most prominent Asia-based casino operators and owners Genting Malaysia Berhad has recently revealed the identities of its last five executive team members who will be responsible for the company’s Resort World Las Vegas venue which is currently under construction in Nevada.
According to one report released on Friday by Inside Asian Gaming, this Kuala Lumpur-based company also shared some more information on its currently under construction, massive 3,400- hotel rooms facility named Resorts World Las Vegas. This is a luxurious facility located on an eighty-seven acre- property located in the northern area of the gambling capital.
It was also revealed by Inside Asian Gaming that the facility is expected to start welcoming its very first guests in December next year. The same report also revealed that this opening scheme will take longer than expected initially as the company wants to introduced trio hotel towers alongside a massive 30,000 square feet lake surrounded by Chinese gardens. The company is also working on its massive 100,000 square feet casino floor alongside other facilities including restaurants and dining areas.
Emerged Back in 1980
The company responsible for the luxurious, currently under construction Resorts World Las Vegas emerged on the scene back in 1989 in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. Nine years after its establishment, the company underwent a massive restructure alongside Resorts World Bhd. This move resulted in Resorts World Bhd being acquired by Genting Group. In other words, Genting Group acquired all of its hotel and resort-related operations as well as all of its gaming floors and other assets.
Today, Resorts World Bhd is one of the Genting Bhd subsidiary companies under the hospitality and leisure division which manages operations at Genting Highlands except at First World Plaza and First World Hotel which are managed by the company’s First World Hotel and Resort Bhd subsidiary. Some of the company’s main activities today include tourist entertainment and accommodation resorts at Genting Highlands which comprise entertainment, hotel, gaming, and amusement.
The company has six hotels including Golf and Country Resort, Genting Hotel, Theme Park Hotel, Highlands Hotel, Awana Genting Highlands and First World Hotel. When it comes to its latest venture, the Resorts World Las Vegas, this is another luxurious property which is located on the former Stardust Resort and Casino hotel which closed its doors in 2007. The facility was demolished that same year while the construction property was sold to Genting in March of 2013.
Highly Experienced Executive Team
The company behind the Resorts World Las Vegas revealed that its five new hires for its executive board have more than eighty years of combined experience. It was also revealed that they have helped with running some of the biggest casino resorts in Nevada before they joined the facility’s current President Scoot Sibella. The executive team alongside Scott Sibella will work on making this Las Vegas-based facility a major success.
Following the news, Inside Asian Gaming revealed that the new executives include Bill McArthur hires as a Chief Information Officer and Chris Nordling hired as the company’s Chief Financial Officer. Bill McArthur used to work for some of the biggest companies in the industry while Chris Nordling is another veteran in the industry who has a great experience as a Chief Financial Officer working for the MGM Resorts International giant.
