Veteran casino executive Mark Brown has left the Imperial Pacific group, according to media reports.
Mr Brown (pictured in a file photo) was board chairman of Imperial Pacific International (CNMI) LLC, according to the Saipan Tribune.
Imperial Pacific International (CNMI) LLC is an indirect wholly-owned subsidiary of Hong Kong-listed casino investor Imperial Pacific International Ltd. It operates the Imperial Pacific Resort, a gaming facility on the Pacific island of Saipan, which opened in July 2017.
Local media reports stated that Mr Brown had left the company in December, with “family reasons” cited as the deciding factor.
Mr Brown joined the Imperial Pacific group in November 2014, as president and chief executive of the company’s Saipan casino resort project.
Mr Brown was president of the Venetian Macao and also of Sands Macao from April 2006 to April 2009. He joined Cambodian casino operator NagaCorp Ltd in December 2013 as chief operating officer of subsidiary NagaWorld Ltd, but he resigned in October 2014 to “pursue other opportunities”, NagaCorp said at the time.
Until July this year, Imperial Pacific had been running a temporary gaming facility on Saipan called Best Sunshine Live. Mr Brown oversaw the launch of the latter, which opened in July 2015.
Saipan is part of the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands, a U.S. Pacific jurisdiction.
