Former Gov. Brian Sandoval is joining MGM Resorts as their President of Global Gaming Development.

Sandoval will be leading the company's global expansion efforts, mostly in Japan, and focus on state public policy efforts around sports gaming.

Sandoval completed a state trade mission to Japan in August 2018 and was the youngest-ever chairman of the Nevada Gaming Commission earlier in his career. He left a position as a U.S. District Court judge to run for governor in 2010. He also served as the state's Attorney General.

Sandoval will be leading the efforts in Japan.

MGM also announced on Tuesday that President Bill Hornbuckle will now lead global casino marketing, particularly in Macau.
