Fontainebleau Development Names Maurice Wooden President of Fontainebleau Las Vegas





Maurice Wooden has been appointed the president of Fontainebleau Las Vegas, a five-star luxury resort and casino on the Las Vegas Strip. A 36-year veteran of the luxury hospitality sector, Mr. Wooden’s experience and expertise complement the newly opened Fontainebleau Las Vegas, which is built upon a 70-year legacy of sublime beauty, unparalleled service, and timeless design.

“Throughout his career, Maurice has proven himself as a leader dedicated to evolving the luxury hospitality experience on the Las Vegas Strip. His well-established track record along with his unparalleled consistency and a deep knowledge of the hospitality and gaming industries instill an exceptional level of confidence in us as we continue the development and refinement of our Las Vegas property. Maurice will be an excellent steward of our brand, its culture, and heritage; and we eagerly anticipate his leadership in driving the growth and development of Fontainebleau Las Vegas as we continue our focus on an excellent guest experience,” Jeffrey Soffer, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Fontainebleau Development, said.

Mr. Wooden’s record of leadership in gaming and hospitality is highlighted by his previous tenure as Principal Executive Officer and President of Wynn Las Vegas and as a member of the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority Board of Directors.

“It is extraordinarily invigorating and a tremendous honor to take on the responsibility of leading an incredible team during this defining moment in Las Vegas. The rich history and cultural alignment with this iconic brand resonate with my own passions and I’m looking forward to building on the 70 years of incredible culture that Fontainebleau has established. Fontainebleau Development conceived this resort with a unique, independent vision that sets it apart from everything there is and anything there has ever been on the Strip. This role presents me with a wonderful opportunity to collaborate with a world-class executive team to enhance our Las Vegas community and to contribute to the growth of the Fontainebleau brand for the future,” said Mr. Wooden.
