Crown Resorts CEO Exonerated After Internal Inquiry

After being accused of interfering with security at Melbourne’s Crown casino, Ciaran Carruthers, the CEO of Crown Resorts, which is currently owned by Blackstone, has been absolved of any wrongdoing.

In a speech to staff, Crown chairman Bill McBeath emphasized the findings of an impartial investigation, which confirmed Carruthers’ compliance with laws and regulations (Australian Financial Review).

McBeath emphasized the need for a thorough examination of security procedures in order to improve operational accountability and transparency throughout the organization’s assets.

Board Extends Unwavering Support to CEO

McBeath reiterated the board’s unwavering backing for Carruthers, portraying him as a seasoned executive leading the company’s transformation. Carruthers, appointed CEO in 2022, brings extensive experience from renowned casinos like Wynn Macau, handpicked by Blackstone after acquiring Crown Resorts from the Packer family.

Crown Resorts‘ susceptibility to regulatory scrutiny as a result of purported missteps and interactions with well-known clientele made Blackstone’s takeover of the company easier. A special manager was thus appointed to supervise corrective actions as a result of this.

The Victorian Gambling and Casino Control Commission (VGCCC), which is conducting the investigation, promised strict control and commended Crown for its handling of concerns. The VGCCC’s licensing review for Crown Melbourne’s casino is scheduled for April, however specific suggestions are still to be revealed.

The VGCCC is looking into Crown Resorts after a series of regulatory setbacks, including a royal inquiry on money laundering. Since 2021, the corporation has made a number of notable leadership changes to show its dedication to governance reform.

Carruthers’ investigation comes to an end at the same time that Crown Resorts is working to allay regulatory worries and rebuild operational confidence. Following confirmation by both internal and external investigations, focus is now on the crucial license decision made by VGCCC, which will determine the direction of Crown Resorts’ Victoria activities going forward.
