Prior to that, he held executive positions at Mandalay Bay Resort & Casino, MGM Resorts International-Europe, MGM Grand Las Vegas, and Caesars Palace, Las Vegas. A majority of his career was with Mirage Resorts in various senior management positions.
Hornbuckle was also appointed to serve on the company's Board of Directors.
All of MGM's Las Vegas properties have reopened, following the company’s seven-point health protocol, although some venues and amenities may not be available.
