Former MGM Resorts CEO Lanni Dies

LAS VEGAS (AP) — Officials for casino company MGM Resorts International say former chief executive Terry Lanni has died after a battle with cancer. He was 68.

Lanni, head of the company known then as MGM Mirage, died Thursday night at his home in Pasadena, Calif. Lanni led the Las Vegas company for more than 13 years, retiring in November 2008.

Under his tenure, MGM Mirage grew from a one-casino operation to owning the most casinos on the Las Vegas Strip, including the Bellagio, Mandalay Bay and MGM Grand.

His successor, Jim Murren, says Lanni will be remembered for his leadership on diversity in the casino industry and his philanthropic efforts.

Memorials are planned in Las Vegas and Pasadena.

He is survived by his wife, Debbie, and two sons, as well as siblings.
