Wynn Resorts has appointed Paul Liu as a member of the company’s board of directors effective 3 August 2023.
Liu boasts significant professional experience in entertainment, hospitality, and financial services, both in China and the Asia Pacific region.
He will serve as an independent director and Class I member of the board.
Wynn said Liu’s experience of creating guest experiences and understanding of business talent in those markets would offer an important perspective to the existing board.
Liu is fluent in Chinese and was previously based in Shanghai, where he was a partner at Egon Zehnder, a consultancy firm focused on executive search and board advisory.
In this role, Liu led the Services Practice in the Asia Pacific region with a focus on hotels and hospitality, serving both multinational and domestic Chinese companies.
He was previously the COO of entertainment powerhouse Anschutz Entertainment Group China and was also founder and CFO of luxury lifestyle destination Three On The Bund.
Liu began his career with 14 years in finance at JPMorgan, UBS, Peregrine and Bank of America during spells in both New York and Hong Kong.
Elsewhere, Liu worked on founding and organising the Barnett-Oksenberg Lecture on Sino-American Relations as part of his role as a serving member of the National Committee on US/China relations.
Las Vegas-based casino operator Wynn Resorts also runs two integrated resorts in Asia, including Wynn Macau and Wynn Palace Cotai.
Wynn is set to report its Q2 2023 financial results tomorrow (9 August 2023).
