MGM Resorts International appointed Chris Kelley as president and COO of its Northfield Park property in Ohio, which is known as Hard Rock Rocksino Northfield Park.
The move follows MGM Growth Properties LLC and MGM Resorts' deal last year to buy all the operating assets of Hard Rock Rocksino and lease the property associated with it. The Las Vegas-based casino operator expects to complete the transaction in the first half of 2019.
According to a Jan. 11 release, Kelley's appointment is effective upon the acquisition's closing and the completion of licensing requirements.
Kelley joined the company as CFO and vice president of MGM Grand Detroit in 2017.
