Wynn created a real estate empire with high-rise resorts and casinos in Las Vegas, Macau and elsewhere. Wynn’s ability to create ultimate luxury hotels, restaurants and casinos, certainly didn’t go unnoticed in Monaco.

Early in his career, he oversaw the construction of several landmark Las Vegas hotels, including the Bellagio and the Mirage. He is an important donor of the Republican party. In 2010, HSH Prince Albert II granted Wynn honorary Monegasque citizenship.

Mr Wynn is honoured to be involved in the Principality of Monaco.

He was born in New Haven in 1942, and graduated from Manlius Pebble Hill Private School in 1959. His father died shortly before Steve graduated from the University of Pennsylvania in 1963. He took over the management of the family’s bingo parlours in Maryland.

He moved to Las Vegas with his wife in 1967. Steve Wynn acquired an old downtown casino, the Golden Nugget, renovated and expanded it in order to attract a wealthier clientele. Success was almost immediate.

He has an extensive private art collection, with pieces by Edouard Manet, Andy Warhol, Paul Cézanne and a famous painting by Pablo Picasso.

Suffering from retinitis pigmentosa, he donated profits to an association fighting against this disease.
