Another eHeavyweight Leaving Wynn

Another heavyweight is leaving Wynn Resorts' PR/Marketing/E Strategies department, Mr. Wynn Wu.

For those who don't know, Wynn Wu is the person responsible for design direction of all interactive portions of Wynn Resorts' marketing. Some of his notable duties have been to marshaling the Wynn iPhone and Android apps through their design steps and the complete renovation of the Wynn portfolio of websites from Flash technology to mobile friendly HTML 5 while still maintaining the brand to pixel perfection.

Other than his Twitter posting, we have no details as to what has precipitated Wynn Wu's departure, but can only guess that it is related to the nearly 100% turnover and elimination of the entire E Strategy and Advertising/Marketing/PR department.

It certainly is sad to see a team that was enthusiastically operating at full throttle, defining casino resort usage of social media and modernizing all of its internet out reach decimated to flailing nothingness in a matter of months.

Will the last person out, turn off the lights.

Comments & Discussion:

Is it a requirement to work at the Wynn that you have to have some variation of 'win' in your name?

I know Wynn--he's a very smart guy who's really impressed me when we've talked. I'm sure he'll be somewhere else in town before too long, if he wants to be.

Not sure exactly what's going on there, but it seems they've lost some very talented people.

losing the culture/brand? (or moving it to macau?)

Wynn Wu is a great guy. Smart, soft spoken and super plugged in.

A big loss for the Wynn Resorts brain [drain] trust.
