MGM Resorts International announced last week that it has appointed Marcus Glover president and chief operating officer of Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa in Atlantic City, N.J. He will oversee the daily operations of the property while providing strategic direction and leadership.
Mr. Glover brings to the position more than a decade of gaming and hospitality experience. He has designed and developed several properties from the ground up in new jurisdictions and has held leadership roles in project management, government relations and labor relations.
“Marcus’ proven leadership ability and wide range of skills will continue to serve the Company well as he assumes this new role,” said Corey Sanders, chief operating officer of MGM Resorts.
Mr. Glover joined MGM Resorts in 2015, first serving as general manager and then president and chief operating office of Beau Rivage Resort & Casino in Biloxi, Miss. He previously served as senior vice president and general manager for Caesars Entertainment in northeastern Ohio, and as assistant general manager and vice president of operations for Harrah’s in St. Louis. He also held several leadership positions with Caesars in Mississippi and Louisiana.
He earned a Master of Business Administration from the Fuqua School of Business at Duke University and a Bachelor of Arts in Finance from Morehouse College. While in Mississippi, he served as a member of the Mississippi Economic Council, the Mississippi Gulf Coast Chamber of Commerce and the Biloxi Bay Chamber of Commerce. In Mississippi, he also was an Ochsner Baptist Governing Board member and on the board of the Mississippi Hospitality and Gaming Association.
He succeeds Tom Ballance as president of Borgata, the premier resort in Atlantic City. It was announced in May that after the leadership transition, Mr. Ballance would become executive vice president of operations for MGM Resorts.
Mr. Glover will assume his new role at Borgata upon completion of licensing requirements.
