Company: Caesars Entertainment Corporation
Family Name: Shen
Given Name: William
Role: Senior Vice-President, Managing Director for Korea and Japan
Profile: Since he joined Caesars in 2006, Shen has been involved in international development projects for the company, mainly in Asia. Since 2011, he has been in charge of securing the license and developing Caesars Korea IR, and in 2017 he was also made head of the Japan office.
The Nihon Keizai Shinbun’s high-powered IR Forum in Tokyo drew more than six hundred guests, not including the many others who reportedly had to be turned away by an excess of applications. The event brought together government officials, IR operators, analysts, and others for an intensive day-long event last Wednesday.
Caesars Entertainment is counting on its MICE and entertainment experience to carry off the prize of a casino license in Japan, says William Shen, the company’s managing director for Japan and South Korea.
