There are several Business tycoons of US origin who have risen from humble roots to the zenith of success, but few of them have redefined the rules of success like Steve Wynn. The billionaire Casino mogul who is known for making some of the most lavish and opulent resorts in LA, shows no sign of tiresomeness and stopping in an age when people are seen mostly at old age homes! From setting up some of the most plush resorts in LA to lavish properties, Wynn made his place amongst the richest entrepreneurs in USA. He is said to be the 428th wealthiest man globally.
Steve Wynn shot into fame in the 1990s, when his company resorted to rebuilding and setting up popular and opulent resorts in LA region, including the likes of Golden Nugget, Bellagio and Treasure Island. His renovation of ageing and worn out Golden Nugget was well appreciated. He went on to acquire stakes in other leading casinos later. Thereafter, he set up The Mirage on the Strip. He again hogged headlines by setting up Bellagio, which made LA an emerging luxury destination for the wealthy lot in the 1990s.
Wynn grew in his casino and resort business with time and moved to more expensive and grandiose projects. His latest achievements include setting up Wynn Las Vegas and Wynn Macau, built in 2005 and 2006 respectively. His interest in renovating casinos and resorts is accompanied with deep rooted penchant for art. It is quite inspiring and surprising at the same time that this entrepreneur does not take break from work despite his age and degenerative eye disease.
