Two casino industry consultancies respectively led by people that have had casino management experience at senior level in Asia, are to pool resources to offer “integrated resort planning and development services”.
That is according to an announcement sent out on Monday under the headed stationery of one of them: Euro Pacific Asia Consulting Ltd.
That firm is led by Shaun McCamley, a former president at the-then Grand Ho Tram casino resort near Ho Chi Minh City in Vietnam.
The other partner in the newly-announced collaboration is Murray International Group, led by Niall Murray. He has worked in senior roles including in Macau at SJM Holdings Ltd.
The two consultancy firms were “joining forces to provide unrivalled expertise for clients looking for advice and help with the planning, development and operation of international-standard integrated resort projects,” said Monday’s announcement. It added that the two sides provided an aggregate of “more than 70 years of experience and involvement in the gaming and integrated resort industries”.
Murray International is said to have “a strong history of working with governments, owners and operators to develop, open, operate and optimise leading tourism, mixed-use complexes, integrated resort, casino, hotel, food and beverage operations around the world…”
In choosing to work with Perth, Australia-based Euro Pacific Asia Consulting, Murray International was pairing with an “internationally-recognised consulting firm” that had provided “expert services” to “established resort gaming operators in Australia, the United Kingdom, the Bahamas, South Africa, Eastern Europe and throughout Southeast Asia,” said Monday’s release.
“Murray International has been looking to broaden its integrated resort service portfolio by partnering with a respected and knowledgeable firm able to provide that extra layer of expertise and experience in those operational dimensions critical to the success of world-class integrated resort destinations,” said Mr Murray, the chairman of Murray International, as quoted in Monday’s announcement.
