business leaders and entrepreneurs Biography - Information

Steve Wynn is a major player in the development of the Las Vegas gambling oasis in Nevada, USA. His casino developments in Las Vegas continue to grow in size, ambition, lavishness, and some would say excess. Wynn has also become a notable art collector with important paintings being bought by him for up to $35 million (the record price he paid for a JMW Turner painting).

Stephen Alan Wynn was born on the 27th January, 1942 in Connecticut. He was raised in Utica, New York with a younger brother. The business of gambling was introduced to the young Wynn from an early age as his father operated a chain of Bingo parlors.

Michael Wynn passed away before his son Steve graduated from the University of Pennsylvania (Bachelor of Arts degree in English Literature). Steve Wynn then took control of his late father's Bingo enterprise, which proved to be the beginnings of a continually expanding gambling and entertainment empire.

With the profits from the Bingo businesses, Wynn bought a stake in the Frontier Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada. He and his wife (Elaine Pascal) then moved to Las Vegas in 1967.

Each new investment brought Wynn greater profits, allowing his casinos and hotels to expand in size and reputation. He introduced things like an indoor forest, outdoor volcano, impressive water fountains, a pirate ship, an artificial lake, and fine art galleries with paintings that would have the finest museums in the world salivating.

His most impressive building to date is the "Wynn Las Vegas" which was opened in April, 2005. It is perched upon the famous Las Vegas Strip and stands 50 stories high, making it one of the tallest buildings in Las Vegas. It is a 2,716 room hotel with 111,000 square foot of gaming area. The $2.7 billion development is a more elegant and subtle creation by the man that had previously used glitz to attract the punters. From the outside the Wynn Las Vegas is relatively understated, encouraging visitors to enter the building to experience things like The Wynn Art Collection, the Penske and Wynn Ferrari / Maserati Dealership, the Lake of Dreams, and much.

In 2006 Steve Wynn also opened "Wynn Macau" in the gambling hub of Macau, China.

Wynn continues to play a very active role in the running of his business empire and lives in Las Vegas with his wife.
