Renee West Retires as President & COO of Luxor and Excalibur

I must have been living under a rock to somehow miss this information in the past few weeks as it was coming to light – but one of the greatest individuals I’ve ever had the pleasure of working for has retired today. Renee West has stepped down as the President and COO of both Luxor and Excalibur resorts in Las Vegas.

This hits close to home, because while I lived in Las Vegas, I worked in the casino at Excalibur under Renee’s management, and it was absolutely one of the most exciting, inspiring experiences I have ever had. Renee was a true leader; visionary, exciting, incredibly personable, strong, and passionate as well as compassionate about Vegas, her employees, and the betterment of the resorts she managed.

Renee is one of the greatest “casino bosses” Las Vegas has ever seen. In an industry where CEOs and COOs are mainly male, she broke down barriers and blazed trails during her 15 years with MGM Resorts International. She began her incredible career in 2000, where she worked at State Line as Vice President of Human Resources at Primm Valley Resorts. In a meteoric rise to power, Renee was soon named President of the three Primm casinos; the first time in MGM’s history that a woman had been given the opportunity to oversee any property, let alone several at once. In 2005, Renee was moved to The Strip, where MGM put her in charge of Excalibur. That is when I had the opportunity to be one of her employees, and I absolutely adored her style, skills, and uncommon decency that she showed to everyone, regardless of status or position within the company.
