He will oversee and advance the group’s diversification strategy by expanding its digital platforms organically and through acquisitions, including driving growth and innovation through its sports betting and iGaming platform BetMGM.

“Enhancing and growing our digital businesses is one of MGM Resorts’ top priorities, and Gary is uniquely positioned to help the company build on successes and seize new opportunities,” said MGM Resorts International CEO & President Bill Hornbuckle.

“Gary will play a vital role in MGM Resorts’ diversification strategy and drive our investment in digital innovations.”

Fritz previously served as Head of Gaming for IAC, and recently led MGM Resorts’ acquisition of LeoVegas. He will now be responsible for the group’s growth strategies in digital gaming, including organic growth and potential M&A activities. He will serve as a member of the company’s Executive Committee, and will become a member of the Board of Directors for BetMGM and Chairman of the Board of LeoVegas.

Fritz commented: “I'm excited to join MGM Resorts and contribute to the company’s success as it looks to accelerate its growth in digital gaming.

“MGM is the global leader in premium gaming and entertainment, and I look forward to continuing to drive our strategy around global expansion and digital innovation.”

Beginning his career at McKinsey & Company, Fritz previously led global strategy and expansion plans for multinational groups, including IAC, TripAdvisor and Expedia. He holds an MBA from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and a bachelor’s degree from the University of Pennsylvania.

Earlier this week, BetMGM premiered a new ad spot starring hockey icons Wayne Gretzky and Connor McDavid, scheduled to run throughout the 2022-23 National Hockey League (NHL) season.
