MGM Resorts International has announced the appointment of Aaron Fischer as chief strategy officer. Fischer, who formerly worked as Head of Consumer and Gaming research at brokerage CLSA, joined MGM Resorts in November as senior vice president of corporate development where he has been working closely on strategies for the global development of integrated resorts in Asia. He will now relocate from Hong Kong to the company’s corporate headquarters in Las Vegas.
As chief strategy officer, Fischer will be responsible for leading MGM Resorts’ enterprise-wide strategic planning process to include both a focus on operations and the global development of its iconic suite of Las Vegas-inspired hospitality and entertainment resort brands. Fischer will play a leading role in communicating the company’s strategy to key partners and stakeholders, including helping to shape the investor relations strategy.
“The addition of a chief strategy officer will further our ability to deliver strong financial results, drive disciplined growth and accelerate the achievement of our ongoing performance improvement objectives,” said Corey Sanders, chief operating officer of MGM Resorts. “Aaron is an outstanding leader whose multidisciplinary experience is a great compliment to our seasoned executive team.”
