Wynn’s Maddox to explore non-gaming opportunities – Chairman

Wynn Resorts Ltd. CEO Matt Maddox will focus on non-gaming activities after his departure from the casino operator by the end of January, according to the gaming giant’s chairman of the board of directors Phil Satre.

Maddox “wanted to explore opportunities outside of gaming and now is the right time for him to do that from a career standpoint”, Satre said in apublic statement where the outgoing CEO was praised for his performance, namely over the four years he served as top executive.

“Matt led our company through two of the most fundamentally challenging events any executive could possibly expect: the abrupt departure of a founder and a pandemic,” Satre underlined referring to the departure of Steve Wynn and the COVID-19 global pandemic.
