New York-listed casino operator MGM Resorts has appointed Marcus Glover as president and chief operating officer of Atlantic City’s Borgata Hotel Casino and Spa.

Glover replaces Tom Ballance, who took over as executive vice president of operations for MGM Resorts earlier this year.

Glover has more than a decade of gaming and hospitality experience and has been with MGM since 2015, first as general manager and then president and COO of Beau Rivage Resort & Casino in Biloxi, Mississippi.

He previously served as senior vice president and general manager for Caesars Entertainment in North Eastern Ohio, and as assistant general manager and vice president of operations for Harrah's in St. Louis. 

"Marcus' proven leadership ability and wide range of skills will continue to serve the company well as he assumes this new role," said Corey Sanders, chief operating officer of MGM Resorts.

Glover will assume his new role at Borgata upon completion of licensing requirements.

Shares in MGM Resorts International (NYQ:MGM) closed in New York Friday up 0.89 per cent at $34.03 per share, just off their 52-week high of $34.34 per share set on June 26th.
