MGM CEO goes
MGM Resorts International’s Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Jim Murren will step down before the completion of his contract at the end of 2021, but will remain in the role until a successor is appointed.
The company’s Board of Directors has formed a committee of independent directors to work with an executive search firm to find a successor.
“Jim has led the company through growth, transforming it into a global entertainment company with a worldwide footprint and creating value for MGM Resorts shareholders,” said the Board of Directors’ Lead Independent Director Roland Hernandez.
“As Chief Executive Officer, he has spearheaded significant achievements across our properties, including the development of the CityCenter destination.”
