U.S.-based casino operator Las Vegas Sands Corp has named Robert Goldstein as its president and chief operating officer, the firm announced on Thursday. He will replace Michael Leven, who is retiring at the end of the year – as announced last May – after having served as president and chief operating officer since 2009.
In Asia, Las Vegas Sands is the parent of Macau-based casino operator Sands China Ltd. It also owns and operates casino resort Marina Bay Sands, in Singapore, via subsidiary Marina Bay Sands Pte Ltd.
“Our company is in the enviable position of having the most diverse set of assets and the strongest balance sheet in our industry, as well as being best-positioned to capitalise on future growth opportunities as they happen,” Las Vegas Sands chairman and chief executive Sheldon Adelson said in a statement. “With Rob’s strong leadership, passion and energy, I’m fully confident we will expand our industry leadership.”
Mr Goldstein joined Las Vegas Sands in 1995 and has served in several executive positions for the company. Most recently, he was president of global gaming operations, overseeing the company’s casino operations in Asia and the United States.
“We will continue to concentrate on getting the most out of our existing properties, pursuing new development opportunities and driving shareholder value,” Mr Goldstein stated. “There is much work to do, but I couldn’t be more excited about the opportunities ahead of us,” he added.
