The new hotel is currently under construction and is scheduled to open in Q4 2023 – until then, Mufson will remain in his current role as President of Fontainebleau Development.

Fontainebleau Development’s Founder, Chairman and CEO Jeffrey Soffer said of Mufson’s appointment: “Brett and I have spent years together as partners, and he is a brilliant leader whose expertise provides us with an extraordinary amount of confidence to build our brand with unparalleled consistency and focus.

“After years of critical contribution to the overall Fontainebleau Development brand and the building of Las Vegas, we are now poised to successfully run our entry into the Las Vegas market and establish our legacy on the Strip.”

Meanwhile, Mufson commented on his new role: "I'm honoured to lead the future of the Fontainebleau brand and take our iconic masterpiece that is Fontainebleau Miami Beach, with its remarkable history, culture, and design and evolve it into the Las Vegas market, one of the most phenomenal cities in the world.

“As we near our 70th anniversary as a brand, this is a dream opportunity to work with our executive team to pioneer and set the stage for a new era of luxury hospitality.”

The casino operator describes the new venue as ‘a new hotel for a new era’ and had previously announced that Cliff Atkinson would be its President in February 2022– however, those plans appear to have changed since last year and Mufson will now take on the role.
