Every day we picked the essential award travel news to keep you stay informed. Today, we are bringing you – Wynn Resorts CEO Steve Wynn Steps Down & American New Award Ticket Restriction; 4 other award travel news today.
“The unofficial king of Las Vegas,” Steve Wynn, has just stepped down as the CEO of Wynn Resorts after allegations of sexual misconducts. He also resigned as the finance chairman of the US Republican party’s fundraising arm in January, since the pressure of tumbling company stock is too much for the billionaire. Of course, there are always two sides of a story. On one hand, Wynn denied the accusations as “preposterous” and said they were instigated by his ex-wife to seek advantage in their divorce lawsuit.
