MGM Resorts International has appointed Bill Hornbuckle as acting Chief Executive Officer. He currently holds the posts of President and Chief Operating Officer of MGM.

Outgoing Chief Executive Officer Jim Murren, who announced his plans to leave last month, stepped down from his post. MGM Resorts said board member Paul Salem, of Providence Equity Partners, will succeed Murren as chairman.

“It is clear that once the threat to the public health has subsided and we are ready to reopen our resorts and casinos, it will take an incredible effort to ramp back up. We believe continued steady, skilled leadership is needed in this time of great upheaval and uncertainty,” Salem said in a statement.

MGM Resorts and other casino operators have closed down temporarily in response to the spreading of coronavirus.
