Wynn Resorts Ltd has announced the appointment of Paul Liu to its Board of Directors in a move it says will boost its experience within the Asia-Pacific region.
According to details provided by Wynn, Liu – who joined as an independent director as of 3 August 2023 – brings significant professional experience in entertainment, hospitality, and financial services both in China and the Asia-Pacific region.
“His track record and perspective on creating guest experiences in the luxury and hospitality fields, as well as his unique understanding of business talent in the Asia Pacific market, will be a significant contribution to the Company and will offer an important perspective to the Wynn Board of Directors,” the company explained.
Liu was previously based in Shanghai where he was a partner at global leadership consultancy firm Egon Zehnder AG, leading the Services Practice in the Asia Pacific region with a focus on hotels and hospitality, serving multinational and Chinese companies.
He was previously COO of entertainment firm Anschutz Entertainment Group China and was a founder of Three On The Bund, the luxury lifestyle destination located in Shanghai, where he served as CFO.
Liu earlier spent 14 years in finance at JPMorgan, UBS, Peregrine, and Bank of America, in New York and Hong Kong, Wynn said.
He is said to have an active interest in Sino-American relations and is a member of the National Committee on US-China Relations. Since 2005 Liu has worked with the National Committee on founding and organizing the influential Barnett-Oksenberg Lecture on Sino-American Relations given in Shanghai.
