MGM Resorts International has appointed former Charge d'Affaires, United States Embassy Tokyo, Jason P Hyland, as the representative officer and president of MGM Resorts Japan.

The company will also allocate development specialists from the US to Japan as it increases its total development staffing, reinforcing MGM Resorts Japan's organisational structure as it works to realise a Japanese resort.

To accommodate its expanding team, MGM Resorts Japan will relocate its office from Akasaka to Otemachi, Tokyo and open a brand-new office in the central business district on September 1, 2017.
