MGM Resorts' president of events and nightlife Sean Christie will leave the company at the end of the month. The move is not related to the current coronavirus pandemic, which has closed MGM's properties in Las Vegas since Nevada went into lockdown last week, and comes after Christie says he informed MGM leadership in February that he wished to transition out of the company.
"During this unprecedented and challenging time, I am wishing all the best to the amazing Events and Nightlife team and the entire company," Christie said in a Facebook post Friday (March 27). "I have nothing but appreciation and gratitude for everyone at MGM Resorts. I am confident that this incredible company, industry, city and world will come back stronger than ever."
Christie served as the president of events and nightlife for MGM Resorts in Las Vegas for just over two years. During his time with MGM, Christie had oversight of all owned and leased day and nightlife venues and provide strategic direction around special events programming, including Hakkasan Nightclub.
