LAS VEGAS, Nev. (FOX5) - The Rio Hotel & Casino Las Vegas announced that Patrick Miller has been appointed President and CEO.

“Miller has an impressive career spanning 28 years in the gaming and hospitality industry and a proven track record of success leading some of Las Vegas’ most popular Strip resorts,” the resort wrote in a media release. Miller previously held key positions within MGM Resorts International, including Senior Vice President overseeing the hospitality divisions at MGM Grand, New York-New York, Excalibur, Signature, and the Shadow Creek golf course.

His most notable role was as the President and COO at Park MGM and NoMad Hotel, where he spearheaded the half-billion-dollar renovation of Monte Carlo to Park MGM. As the newly appointed President of Rio Hotel & Casino, Miller is set to play a pivotal role in its transformation, as the property is currently in the midst of a multi-phase, $340 million renovation.

“Patrick’s extensive experience in the Las Vegas hospitality industry, including his many leadership roles at MGM Resorts, stands as a testament to his expertise,” remarked the Chairman of Dreamscape, Eric Birnbaum. “Having overseen the transition of Monte Carlo to Park MGM, Patrick is the perfect person to lead the total revitalization of Rio Hotel & Casino and its dedicated team members into the next chapter of this iconic property’s history.”
