Wynn Resorts CEO Matthew Maddox faced grilling questions about his leadership and claims of lack of any knowledge of recurring sexual harassment incidents at the company during the second day of MassGaming’s hearing.
The critical three-day hearing will help the Massachusetts Gaming Commission decide on the fate of the Las Vegas casino giant in the state.
Wynn Resorts is building the $2.6 billion Encore Boston Harbor in the city of Everett near Boston.
Mr. Maddox served as President of the company until its former boss, Steve Wynn, stepped down from the CEO role last February, following the publication of a Wall Street Journal article detailing a decades-long pattern of sexual misconduct by the casino mogul.
Since news about multiple sexual harassment incidents involving Mr. Wynn and Wynn Resorts employees emerged, Mr. Maddox has maintained that he had no previous knowledge of what was going on in the company.
Commissioner Gayle Cameron was among the gaming officials to grill Mr. Maddox during the hearing with different important questions about how he missed all the red flags that something was going on.
