Two high-profile departures rocked Steve Wynn properties on Friday.
Hours after Vegas Confidential reported that Danielle Price, director of wine at Wynn Resorts had her position eliminated, Jennifer Dunne, vice president of public relations and advertising, sent an e-mail to media outlets saying she had resigned effective today (Friday).
Price could not be reached for comment.
Dunne, who joined Wynn Las Vegas in 2006 after leaving Cirque du Soleil’s marketing department, said in her e-mail that she has not firm plans but intends to take some time off and visit family and friends. She added that she looks forward to “the next adventure.”
Dunne moved into the top PR and advertising job in July 2007 after Denise Randazzo left.
Prior to joining Wynn, Price spent almost seven years as corporate wine director managing the wine programs for Smith & Wollensky Restaurant Group.
Her departure comes about a month after Wynn closed his most-decorated restaurant, Alex.
Price had indicated last fall that she was building a home in Napa.
