Sands China names new boss
Sands China, a majority-owned subsidiary of global resort developer Las Vegas Sands, appoints Wilfred Wong as president and chief operating officer, effective November 1.
He replaces Rob Goldstein, president and COO of Las Vegas Sands, who has been serving as Sands China?s interim president since earlier this year.
Wong joins Sands China after having served in a variety of senior business roles, including most recently as chairman and chief executive officer of the Hong Kong-listed Hsin Chong Construction Group.
?Wilfred has a unique combination of private and public sector experience we think will be invaluable to the company at this point in our history,? said Sheldon G. Adelson, chairman of both Sands China and La Vegas Sands.
?We?ve been a part of the Macau community for more than a decade and our needs, along with our responsibilities to the people of Macau, have changed dramatically since we opened the Sands Macau in 2004.
?As president of Sands China, Wilfred will be able to put his experience to work helping us chart a path for our next decade of success in Macau.?
