“It has been my honour to represent this great Company since 1994, and to lead the industry on so many issues over the years,” said Brown. “Together with our employees and stakeholders, we have accomplished great things for the Company, as well as for the state of Nevada. I look forward to supporting a smooth transition as Catherine takes on her new position. I will think about act three of my life when that is completed.”
