Steve Wynn Steps Down As Wynn Resorts CEO


Asked about the effect of the commission's investigation on the $2.4 billion casino under construction outside of Boston, Bedrosian said, "I know the company has made a commitment to continue building and we'll take it one step at a time". The fate of the two new hotels he's proposed for Las Vegas may face scrutiny.

The company, which is responsible for several casino operations including the famous Wynn Macau, Wynn Palace Cotai and Wynn and Encore Las Vegas has with a "collective heavy heart" accepted Wynn resignation. Both properties are now owned by MGM Resorts International. Wynn created a limited liability company called Entity Y to pay the settlement. Although still denying the allegations, Wynn has announced his resignation from his position as CEO and Chairman of Wynn Resorts.

Wynn also notably acted as finance chairman for the Republican National Committee, a position he vacated last week in light of the accusations.

Although Wynn has called the allegations "preposterous", he announced his departure from the company late Wednesday, saying that "I have reached the conclusion I can not continue to be effective in my current roles".

Replacing Wynn on the company's Board of Directors is Boone Wayson.
