Cahill leaves Fairmont for new role with LVS

Las Vegas Sands Corp. on Friday announced that Chris Cahill has joined the company in the newly created position of executive vice president of global operations.

After almost two decades with Fairmont Raffles International, Cahill is now responsible for overseeing Las Vegas Sands’ various property operations, as well as corporate marketing, human resources, and other operating departments.  He will report to president and COO Michael Leven.

While at Fairmont Raffles and its predecessor organizations, Cahill led the company through several successful mergers as both president and chief operating officer.  He began his hospitality career in 1978 as a beverage manager for the Delta Hotel in Ottawa, Canada, and has served in a number of senior positions before landing his role as chief operating officer of Fairmont Raffles Hotels International, which he had held since 2006.
