She is the fourth executive to leave the company in the last month.

The Fontainebleau Las Vegas has lost another executive, marking the fourth to leave the company since the resort opened last month, according to a local report in the Las Vegas Review-Journal.

VP of Revenue Management Angie Dobney is the latest executive to leave Fontainebleau, following the departure of former COO Colleen Birch and former CMO Shane Smith earlier in January, along with SVP of Casino Operations Michael Clifford, who left last month.

Fontainebleau recently confirmed the departure of Birch to Gaming America, so it looks like Dobney is the next executive added to the list of departures.

A representative with the company wished Dobney well but did not state why she left Fontainebleau. The company has not given reasons why any of its former executives resigned.

The Fontainebleau Las Vegas sits on 25 acres and is home to a 150,000-square-foot casino. The gaming floor features 1,300 slot machines and 128 table games, along with 18,000 square feet reserved for high-limit gaming. This area includes a slot area with three table games and nearly 105 slots.

The Fontainebleau Las Vegas opened on December 13 after nearly 20 years of planning. Fontainebleau Development Chairman and Developer Jeffrey Soffer drew up initial plans for the 3,700-room Strip resort nearly 20 years ago.

Construction on the resort started in 2007 but came to a halt after a series of financial issues that held up completion. Due to issues with financing, the company walked away from the project in 2009 when construction had reached 70% completion.

Ownership changed hands several times during the next 10 years. The recent Covid-19 pandemic also stalled the project up until two years ago.
