(PRESS RELEASE) -- MGM Resorts International today announced that Jeff Mochal has joined the company as Senior Vice President of Corporate Communications. Mochal will oversee the company's corporate communications and strategic positioning, leading issues management strategy and proactive media relations, internal communications and social impact and sustainability messaging strategies for issues affecting MGM Resorts on a global scale.

With decades of experience in corporate communications, Mochal joins MGM Resorts from LPL Financial, where, as Senior Vice President for Marketing and Communication, he led public and media relations, employee and advisor communication, corporate social responsibility, research marketing, new store sales marketing, and crisis and issues management.
