News24.com has learnt that Wynn Resort has reportedly decided to put up a billboard in the US state of Florida, calling the company’s CEO, Mark Sussman, a “cowboy”.
The company, which is based in Palm Beach, Florida, has been under fire recently for its management of the company, and for its alleged involvement in the deaths of several Native American tribes.
The company has denied any wrongdoing.
News24.co.uk has learnt, however, that Sussmans management has been criticised in recent months.
One of the complaints filed by a Native American tribe has alleged that Sausman, who was born in New Jersey and has been married to his wife for more than 20 years, had allegedly told employees to “take your chances” when faced with potential lawsuits from the tribe.
Sussmans spokesperson Michael Schulze said the company is “deeply saddened by this report”.
Sussman has been CEO since August of this year, but was ousted by his wife after a controversial CEO search.
Sussmann’s departure followed a report from The Associated Press (AP), which said that Sills management team had been investigated for “poor management” in the company.
Susman had denied any involvement in any misconduct, but a former employee told the AP that he had spoken to Sussmen at least five times about his involvement in alleged Native American wrongdoing, including the deaths and abuse of tribal children by the Sussmans.
The former employee said that in addition to the alleged killings of children, the company had also paid compensation to victims of violence.
