After two years leading the Beau Rivage Resort & Casino, Marcus Glover will move to Atlantic City to become the next president and chief operating officer of Atlantic City’s Borgata Hotel Casino.
MGM Resorts International made the announcement in a press release and said Glover will oversee the daily operations of the Borgata while providing strategic direction and leadership. The company didn’t announce who will take over as chief operating officer of the Beau Rivage.
Glover came to the Beau Rivage in 2015 from Ohio, where he was senior vice president and general manager for Caesars Entertainment’s Horseshoe Casino Cleveland. He also was assistant general manager and vice president of operations for Harrah’s in St. Louis. He held several leadership positions with Caesars in Mississippi and Louisiana, including helping reopen the Grand Biloxi following Hurricane Katrina.
He has a master’s in business administration from Fuqua School of Business at Duke University and a bachelor of arts in finance from Morehouse College. While in Mississippi, he was a member of the Mississippi Economic Council, the Mississippi Gulf Coast Chamber of Commerce and the Biloxi Bay Chamber of Commerce. He also was an Ochsner Baptist Governing Board member and served on the board of Mississippi Hospitality and Gaming Association.
“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.
Just as the Beau Rivage is the leading casino in South Mississippi, the Borgata leads the market in Atlantic City. The resort has 2,000 hotel rooms and suites, 161,000 square feet of casino space, a spa, five fine dining restaurants and 10 casual restaurants, 88,000 square feet of event space, indoor and outdoor pools, plus an additional hotel, The Water Club at Borgata. Atlantic City also has online gambling.
The Beau Rivage has 1,740 rooms and suites, 10 restaurants, four nightclubs and bars, a shopping promenade, spa and Fallen Oak, a Tom Fazio-designed championship golf course.
Glover succeeds Tom Ballance, who will become executive vice president of operations for MGM Resorts.
