MGM International Resorts has appointed Jeff Mochal as senior vice president of corporate communications while Ayesha Molino, who previously held the role, moves up to senior vice president of public affairs.
Mochal previously held the role of senior vice president for marketing and communications at LPL Financial. He will take this experience forward to his new role, where he will focus on overseeing corporate communications, internal communications and sustainability messaging strategies.
He will report to Ayesha Molino, who has been promoted to senior vice president of public affairs. Molino will manage MGM Resorts’ public affairs strategy and supervise the company’s corporate communications and government affairs programs.
“Jeff is joining the company at a crucial time. His skills and expertise will be invaluable as our industry recovers from the pandemic and MGM Resorts seizes on rapidly growing opportunities in mobile gaming and executes on its goal to become the premier global omni-channel gaming, hospitality, and entertainment company,” Molino said.
“Jeff’s strong background and years of experience defining a corporate mission and strategy as a clear and compelling narrative makes him a valuable addition to this leadership team.”
Mochal has also worked in senior communications positions at ConAgra Foods and fast food chains Hardee’s and McDonalds. At McDonald’s, he helped to create and manage US and global public relations projects for the Olympics, FIFA World Cup, and the “I’m Lovin’ It!” campaign.
