These first steps have proven indispensable to our future success by uniting our great resorts into the powerful marketing organization that our company is becoming,” said Mr. Murren.

In addition to serving as chief financial oficer of both MGM Grand Las Vegas and MGM Grand Resorts, he has also served as executive vice president – operations, where he developed both growth opportunities and operating efficiencies for the company.

Throughout this period, Corey has worked closely with Bill Hornbuckle to design and deploy new ideas to grow our business.

“Corey has proven his aptitude, effectiveness, and creativity by instilling a culture of cooperation that has strengthened our marketing initiatives and improved the guest experience. Our entire company will benefit from Corey’s increased scope and responsibilities over all of our wholly-owned resorts, including our luxury brands: Bellagio, MGM Grand, Mandalay Bay, and The Mirage,” said Mr. Murren.
