Caesars Entertainment has announced the appointment of Sandra Douglass Morgan to the company’s board of directors, effective from 7 November.
Morgan joins after serving as chairwoman of the Nevada Gaming Control Board, a role she took up in January 2019.
Caesars CEO Tom Reeg said: “Sandra is a proven leader, team builder, and passionate advocate for always doing the right thing.
“I’m pleased to add her independent voice to our strong board of directors. I look forward to working with her, the rest of our board, and the management team to continue to drive results for our guests, our team members, and our shareholders.”
Morgan previously worked as the city attorney for the city of North Las Vegas, in addition to serving on the Nevada Gaming Commission – the first African American to do so.
Gary Carano, executive chairman of the board of Caesars Entertainment, added: “We are delighted to add Sandra Douglass Morgan to the Caesars Entertainment leadership team.
“Sandra is rooted in the gaming industry in a way few others could be. Her experience as chair of the Nevada Gaming Control Board and as a member of the Nevada Gaming Commission gives her a deep understanding of our industry.
“Her leadership as an attorney for gaming corporations and government entities adds another lens through which she has developed a unique perspective which will help our company continue to move forward as the gaming landscape evolves and grows.”
