New Mirage president to oversee property improvements

MGM Resorts International has named Trevor Scherrer as the new president of the Mirage casino on the Las Vegas Strip.

Chief Operating Officer Corey Sanders says Scherrer has 25 years of experience in the gambling industry, and has worked in marketing positions at several Las Vegas casinos including the Bellagio. He was formerly the vice president of operations for the Mirage.

Sanders says Scherrer will oversee improvements at the Mirage, including a new restaurant, updates to the marquee and a remodel of the casino floor. He will replace Felix Rappaport, who stepped down in December.

Scherrer is a native Nevadan and attended the University of Nevada-Reno.

  1. The mystery of why Felix and McBeath left MGM Resorts so close to one another is still the story. Being a UNR Grad - the new President might find himself more at home heading next door to Treasure Island to bring back jello and mud wrestling to the Mirage.

  2. Yes, why did Felix, one of the most talented casino executives, and McBeath, one of the worst, leave? And what about Aziz? They were all the "golden boys" of MGM at one point and now they are all gone. Maybe Murren doesn't like talent too close to him...
