MGM Resorts names Hornbuckle as acting CEO

23 March 2020

Casino operator MGM Resorts International has appointed Bill Hornbuckle as acting chief executive and also named Paul Salem as the new chairman of its board.

Hornbuckle will replace Jim Murren, who last month announced that he was to step down from the role, bringing to an end almost 12 years in charge of the operator.

Murren had agreed to remain in the role until a successor was appointed, but has now left MGM to provide continuity of leadership, in light of the ongoing situation with the global novel coronavirus pandemic.

Hornbuckle previously served as chief operating officer of MGM and is currently an executive committee member and a board of director of MGM China Holdings.
