Scott Sibella, the founding president of Resorts World Las Vegas (RWLV), a $4 billion establishment owned by Genting Berhad, has tendered his resignation over allegations of breaching corporate policies.
After uncovering instances of policy infractions and breaches of job terms, RWLV released a statement to the media on Sibella’s immediate termination. Though, the RWLV organization did not furnish explicit details pertaining to the particular nature of the policy infractions.
