Wynn Hires New Social Media Expert

posted by Chuckmonster on Monday, 6th June 2011 3:53pm

We've received an as yet unconfirmed tip that Wynn Resorts has hired former Crystals at City Center social media specialist Kathy Olson to take the reigns of their semi-abandoned Facebook and Twitter streams.

If true, Ms. Olson will take over from Jade Bailey-Assam, who left the company in March along with the rest of the PR department after VP of PR and Advertising Jennifer Dunne resigned.

While Ms. Olson makes no direct mention of her job change on her personal LinkedIn or Twitter streams, her last posting - a retweet - confirms the spirit of change is in the air.

No reason to stay is a good reason to go.

Before her working at Crystals, Kathy assisted in the operation of the @LuxorLV Twitter account, post VegasGalB.

We have yet to receive any official confirmation from Wynn, mostly because we don't know who to ask anymore as everyone in their PR department has left the company (get in touch folks!)

So when can we expect to see a building wrap on the Wynn Esplanade?

If they really wanted a social media expert, they would have hired one of the Twitter Twins. Nobody knows social media like those guys.

Cool, I've been missing out on the Grey's Anatomy updates.

Hope this is true Chuckmonster.Please keep us updated. I really couldn't understand them abandoning Twitter and feel it has been a mistake to even let this much time go by without filling the social media position(s).

Of course they missed the boat--if ChuckMonster can ferret out the Twitter twins, then he should run Wynnc@re's social media (btw, typo intentional to avoid copyright claims)
