Baha Mar, the $3.5bn integrated destination gaming resort in The Bahamas, has announced that Whitney Thier has been named Executive Vice President and General Counsel, effective immediately.
Thier, who will report to Tom Dunlap, Baha Mar’s President, will lead the resort company’s legal team as well as assume a key role on the company’s executive committee. She succeeds Uri Clinton, who joined Baha Mar in 2011 and has chosen to relocate with his family back to Las Vegas. Thier joins the company at an important juncture, as Baha Mar completes its construction phase and readies itself for its highly anticipated Grand Opening in Spring 2015.
Thier is uniquely qualified to help Baha Mar become one of the world’s premier gaming resort destinations. Her previous roles as Executive Vice President, Legal and Government Affairs of CG Technologies, L.P. and General Counsel of Fontainebleau Resorts have given her extensive experience in regulatory law, management agreements, gaming technologies, intellectual property, capital financing structures, human resources and resort operations in the United States and internationally. Thier holds a Juris Doctor degree from Tulane Law School and a Bachelor of Arts degree from Dartmouth College. Thier will be relocating with her family to Nassau.
