Wynn Las Vegas President Andrew Pascal will be resigning from his position, the company announced today in a regulatory filing.
Pascal’s position will be filled by Harrah’s Entertainment Regional President Marilyn Winn. Winn has been with Harrah’s for 22 years, most recently as the president of Bally’s, Paris and Planet Hollywood.
“It is with great sadness that I announce the departure of Marilyn Winn after 22 years of service. Please join me in wishing Marilyn a healthy and successful future as she embarks on the next phase of life’s journey,” Harrah’s Western Divisional President Tom Jenkin said today in a companywide memo.
Jenkin also noted in the internal memo that while the company searches for a replacement for Winn, David Hoenemeyer, general manager of Bally’s, Paris and Planet Hollywood, will serve as interim president of the properties.
The filing did not name a reason for Pascal’s departure, but said “there are no disagreements between the company and Mr. Pascal that caused or contributed to his resignation.”
The change will be effective Dec. 1.
Wynn Resorts spokeswoman Jennifer Dunne said Pascal informed Wynn Resorts Chairman and Chief Executive Steve Wynn of his resignation more than a month ago. The announcement was held off until Winn gave notice to Harrah’s, she said.
Dunne said Pascal does not have any definitive plans after he leaves the company. Pascal has held the position of president of Wynn Las Vegas since 2005. Before that, he served as chief operating officer of Wynn Las Vegas, as well as senior vice president of product marketing and development.
Pascal is the nephew of Wynn Resorts shareholder and director Elaine Wynn.
