  Stephen Wynn Profile

Businessman Steve Wynn has been leading casino and resort development in Las Vegas and beyond for more than 45 years. Best known for his key role in the revitalization of the Las Vegas Strip in the 1990s, Wynn is the entrepreneurial figure behind many of the city's most distinctive resorts, including Bellagio, Mirage, Treasure Island and Wynn Las Vegas. Today, Steve Wynn serves as chairman and CEO of Wynn Resorts, Limited.

Born in Connecticut and raised in New York, Stephen A. Wynn got his start in the casino industry in 1963, following the passing of his father Michael, who owned a number of bingo parlors in the eastern United States. After his graduation from the University of Pennsylvania that same year, Steve Wynn took over the operation of the family bingo parlors in Maryland. In 1967, Wynn moved to Las Vegas becoming part owner, slot manager and assistant credit manager of the Frontier Hotel. Between 1968 and 1972 he also owned and operated a wine and liquor importing company. In 1971, an entrepreneurial real estate transaction with Howard Hughes produced sufficient profits for a major investment in the landmark Golden Nugget Casino. Wynn transformed the Golden Nugget into a AAA Four-Diamond resort known for elegance and personal service. By 1973, at the age of 31, Mr. Wynn controlled the property and used profits from the Golden Nugget in Las Vegas to build the 506-room Golden Nugget Hotel & Casino on the Boardwalk in Atlantic City. The resort became known for its elegant facilities, television ads featuring Frank Sinatra and its impressive lineup of superstar entertainment.
