Best of Las Vegas : Trippies 2015

The Editors Choice for Vegas Person of The Year is:

Rob Oseland

Recently departed CEO of SLS Las Vegas, Rob Oseland shepherded the construction, completion and opening of SLS Las Vegas with the same degree of care he took opening Encore. Unlike his experience at Wynn, the SLS faced finacing hurdles and longshot odds of ever opening. While the business model - devised by visioneers sbe Entertianment - hasn't worked out quite yet, the property itself bears the stamp of quality that comes with Rob's name and pedigree.

But wait, that's not all... while shocking, hearing that Mr. Oseland jumped ship to join Andrew Pascal and James Packer's Élan Resort project is the link between two of the biggest news stories of the year. Congratulations Rob!
