EMPLOYMENT

Goldstein began his professional journey at the University of Pittsburgh. After receiving his undergraduate degree, he then moved on to the Temple University School of Law where he attained his graduate degree in law.  

Post-education, Goldstein entered the world of business. Over the course of his career, Goldstein has worked across various industries, including 14 years at UBS Investment Bank. 

Most notably, Goldstein built a long and prosperous career with Las Vegas Sands. Goldstein first began his stint with Las Vegas Sands in 1995 during the early planning period of The Venetian, Las Vegas. This was a critical time for the company, as the project represented its first-ever integrated resort. 

During this period, Goldstein played a pivotal role in helping the company to bring in top retailers, eateries and other leisure attractions, ultimately aiding the company mould the identity of the property and lay the foundations for its ongoing success. 

Following on from his performance, Goldstein was appointed as the President and COO of The Venetian in 1999. Throughout this period, Goldstein’s responsibilities also extended to The Palazzo Las Vegas, a 3,000-room hotel connected to the Venetian that opened its doors in 2008. Goldstein held these roles from 1999 to 2010. 

On top of this, Goldstein also served as the President of Global Gaming Operations for Las Vegas Sands. In this role, he was responsible for leading the company’s gaming operations in both Asia and the United States. As part of this position, Goldstein steered the direction of Las Vegas Sands’ gaming efforts, with responsibilities that ranged from hiring to strategy development.  

Off the back of his success across his leadership roles within the Las Vegas Sands and Sands China organisations, Goldstein was ultimately appointed as CEO. In this role, he managed each company’s global properties, offering strategic direction and guidance. 

Throughout his time in this position, Goldstein was also responsible for overseeing new development opportunities as well as maximising value for shareholders.  

In January 2024, it was announced that Goldstein would be stepping down as the CEO of Sands China in place of Grant Chum. Despite this, Goldstein still retains his position as the Chairman of Sands China, as well as the CEO and Chairman of Las Vegas Sands.
