In preparation for the November 2009 opening of CityCenter, MGM Mirage's $7.4 billion development on the Las Vegas Strip, the company announced a number of personnel changes. Bill McBeath, who has been president of Bellagio since 2005, becomes president and COO of Vdara Condo Hotel, a new 4,000-room resort and casino at CityCenter. MGM named former Monte Carlo Resort president Randy Morton the new president and COO of Bellagio. Anton Nikodemus, formerly with Bellagio, becomes president and COO of Monte Carlo Resort & Casino. The changes are effective immediately; the Vdara Condo Hotel also is slated to open in November 2009.
