Veteran casino financial and operations executive David Sisk (pictured) has been appointed chief operating officer (COO) of Genting Singapore Plc’s Resorts World Sentosa, the firm has announced.
In his new role, Mr Sisk will be responsible for all the day-to-day operating units at the Singapore casino resort, the company said in a press release related to its financial results for 2014. The executive will report directly to Tan Hee Teck, chief executive of Genting Singapore, a subsidiary of Malaysian conglomerate Genting Bhd.
The same release said Goh Chye Boon, executive vice president of operations at Resorts World Sentosa, had resigned “to pursue other opportunities”.
The news came at the same time Genting Singapore, the property’s developer and operator, announced a 30 percent year-on-year decline in fourth quarter profit, weighed down, said analysts, by falling volume and bad debt in the VIP player segment at Resorts World Sentosa.
Mr Sisk previously worked for the Macau unit of Las Vegas Sands Corp. The latter company is Genting Singapore’s market rival in Singapore via the Marina Bay Sands property.
“I’m excited to be a part of this great family and look forward to working closely with the team to achieve greater results across the Resort’s myriad of offerings,” Mr Sisk said in a prepared statement.
The press statement revealed Mr Sisk actually joined Resorts World Sentosa in September last year. He is a gaming industry veteran with more than 20 years of experience in Las Vegas and Macau.
Mr Sisk previously worked at Caesars Palace and Wynn Las Vegas as chief financial officer, and more recently at Macau casino operator Sands China. He joined Sands China in 2010 as chief casino officer. He was subsequently appointed as executive vice president and chief operating officer, but resigned in September 2013. No reason for his departure was given by Sands China.
