The largest casino-entertainment company in the US, Caesars Entertainment, has appointed Sandra Douglass Morgan to its Board of Directors, effective 7 November, 2021, and subject to required regulatory approvals. Morgan, an attorney, is the past chairwoman of the Nevada Gaming Control board and the first African American to serve as chair.
“We are delighted to add Sandra Douglass Morgan to the Caesars Entertainment leadership team,” said Gary Carano, executive chairman of the Board. “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.”
“Sandra is a proven leader, team builder, and passionate advocate for always doing the right thing,” said Tom Reeg, CEO of Caesars Entertainment. “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.”
Before becoming chair of the Nevada Gaming Control Board, Morgan served as director of external affairs for AT&T Services, Inc., responsible for managing AT&T’s government and community affairs in Nevada. She previously served as the city attorney for the City of North Las Vegas.
The addition of Morgan grows Caesars Entertainment’s Board of Directors to 10 members.
