Craig Billings, Wynn CEO

Wynn Resorts has confirmed that Craig Billings will take up his position as CEO and executive director from Feb. 1st next year, taking over from Matt Maddox.

Maddox, who has been with Wynn for two decades, resigned in November to explore opportunities outside the gaming industry.

Billings, 47, joined Wynn as chief financial officer in March 2017. He has also served as company president and most recently CEO of Wynn Interactive.

Wynn said Billings has a history of leadership and innovation in the gaming industry both domestically and internationally. Previously he has held executive and board positions with Goldman Sachs, Aristocrat Leisure, NYX Gaming Group and International Game Technology.
