Las Vegas Giant MGM Targets Asian Hotel Focus

Leading hospitality brands MGM Mirage are creating a larger Asian hotel focus with the appointment of industry veteran Michael Sagild in the role of MD Asia-Pacific Development.
Set to be based in Hong Kong, Sagild is a longtime player with senior roles at Hyatt International, Shangri-La, Century, Le Meridien and most recently Anantara/Minor International.
