Macau.- Wynn Resorts chief executive officer Craig Billings has signed a four-year contract extension, taking his leadership of the company to June 2027. Contractual details disclosed in a filing with the US Securities and Exchange Commission show Billings will get an above-inflation rise in his annual salary, from MOP14.63m (US$1.8m) to US$2m.

Under the revised terms, Billings annual target bonus has been raised from a minimum of 200 per cent to a minimum of 250 per cent of his annual base salary. The value of his annual equity grant of restricted stock has been raised from 375 per cent to 410 per cent of his annual base salary.

Billings joined Wynn Resorts in March 2017. After serving as the company’s chief financial officer and later as the chief executive officer of Wynn Interactive, he assumed the CEO position on February 1, 2022, following the departure of Matt Maddox.
