Wynn Resorts Sets Julie Cameron-Doe As Next Chief Financial Officer

Written By Brant James on December 15, 2021

Julie Cameron-Doe will become the chief financial officer at Wynn Resorts in the second quarter of 2022, the global gaming company announced.

Cameron-Doe will succeed Craig Billings, who is slated to become Wynn’s chief executive officer next year. Cameron-Doe is currently the CFO at Aristocrat Leisure. She’s held that position since 2018.

“She will bring a wealth of diverse financial experience to Wynn, having held senior finance roles at Aristocrat since 2013 as well as in global businesses, including Orbitz, The Walt Disney Company and KPMG,” read a Wynn press release.
Said Billings in a release: “Julie is a proven leader and is a sitting public company CFO. Coming from the gaming industry, she understands many aspects of our business and she has diverse international experience. She is the clear choice for this position and her appointment rounds out our senior executive team. We are indeed fortunate to have her join us next year.”

Cameron-Doe latest female gaming exec, but industry still lags

Cameron-Doe will become one of the highest-ranking female executives in a gaming industry that is improving, but still under-represented by women in the board room.
Among them:

  • Jette Nygaard-Andersen was named CEO at Entain Plc in May.
  • Erika Nardozzi, (CEO, Barstool)
  • Amy Howe was named CEO at FanDuel in October, after serving in an interim role.
  • Sarah Butterfass (chief product officer, FanDuel)
  • Carolyn Renzin (chief risk and compliance officer, FanDuel)
  • Lainie Cooney (chief people officer, FanDuel)
  • Dr. Laila Mintas is CEO of PlayUp, but maybe not for much longer after a messy legal battle with the company came to light.

Billings to fill roles soon to be vacated by Matthew Maddox

Billings will also take the helm of CEO at Wynn Macau, effectively succeeding Matthew Maddox in both roles. Maddox took the helm in 2018 when company founder Steve Wynn resigned following allegations of sexual harassment.
