Last week, MGM Mirage announced several personnel changes and promotions in preparation for the November 2009 opening of CityCenter, the company’s $7.4 billion mixed-use development on the Las Vegas Strip.
Bill McBeath has been named president and chief operating officer of the new 4,000-room resort and casino at CityCenter. McBeath will also oversee the Vdara Condo Hotel at CityCenter. McBeath has served as president of Bellagio since February 2005. He previously served as president and CEO of Treasure Island.
Randy Morton has been named president and COO of Bellagio. Morton joined MGM Mirage in 2000 as vice president of Hotel Operations for Bellagio, where he led the property to receive the prestigious AAA Five Diamond Award from 2002 to 2005. Under his direction, Bellagio became the first Las Vegas casino-hotel and the largest hotel ever to receive this award.
