Crown Perth, one of the top land-based casino venues owned and operated by Crown Resorts in Australia, has announced that its new Chief Executive Officer has officially taken charge of the business.
David Tsai, the new Chief Executive Officer of Crown Perth, was sworn in last week with a traditional smoking ceremony led by Dr Richard Walley OAM, an indigenous performer and campaigner.
The new leader of Crown Perth has plenty of experience in the industry as he has previously served as an executive at MGM Resorts. His main task at Crown Perth is to lead the casino back to good standing with the state authorities.
That is because earlier this year the Perth Casino Royal Commission found Crown Perth unsuitable to hold a casino license. However, at the time the Royal Commission agreed to allow the company to operate its casino for two more years, a period in which it was given the chance to make a return to suitability under the close watch of an independent monitor.
The Perth Royal Commission stressed that Crown Resorts will have to “embark on a pathway to suitability” as their activities will be overseen by an independent monitor which will report everything back to the Gaming and Wagering Commission.
Paul Steel was appointed as independent monitor and he will be working together with David Tsai to implement all of the recommendations that were issued in the report of the Perth Casino Royal Commission.
