Jeffrey H. Schwartz, former non-executive director of Macau-based gaming operator Sands China Ltd, died on November 19.
The announcement was made by Las Vegas Sands Corp, the parent of Sands China. Mr Schwartz, 55, was a member of Las Vegas Sands’ board.
“Mr Schwartz was a valued member of our board of directors who made many contributions to our company and the community,” Las Vegas Sands said in a statement on Friday.
Mr Schwartz had been a director of the company since March 2009. He was connected to the logistics sector, being the chairman of the executive committee of Singapore-listed Global Logistic Properties Ltd, dubbed by Bloomberg as “China’s biggest modern warehouse operator”.
Mr Schwartz was appointed non-executive director of Sands China in October 2009. He resigned last May “due to other business commitments”, Sands China said at the time.
