Biography

Mark Anthony Brown was raised in Brigantine, New Jersey and entered the gaming industry in the late 1970s at Atlantic City’s Resorts International. By age 25, Brown was married with two sons and was quickly rising through industry ranks. After a long tenure as CEO of Trump Hotels, in 2005 Brown exercised a clause in his contract that allowed him to leave with a golden parachute if Donald Trump ever owned less than 35% of the company. Since then he has moved to Macau (SAR of PRC) to lead the largest project in gaming industry history with the Las Vegas Sands Corporation.[2]

Management style

In top industry circles, Brown is known for his ability to dominate through forthright and efficient communication. Employees have been quoted referring to Brown as “a tremendous communicator." [3] “I rely on a few key people to keep me informed. They know I trust them… when I need to know something… I know I can call up Mark Brown…” said Donald J. Trump.[4]

Some feel Brown's greatest asset is his ability to relate to all forms of people. [3] Despite an intimidating presence, Brown is friendly and down to earth, known for treating all employees equally. [3] Brown has been quoted many times saying ‘We can all throw our employee name tags into the ocean’, expressing his deep belief that all employees are of equal importance and should all be treated with the utmost respect. [2]

Non-profit work

Brown served as Chairman of the Atlantic City Convention Authority, President of the Atlantic City Casino Association, and on the board of directors for several other non-profit organizations such as N.J. D.A.R.E, Covenant House, and United Way. Brown set the all-time fundraising record at United Way. For his efforts, Brown has received such awards as the Businessman of the Year Award from the Atlantic City Chamber of Commerce, the Humanitarian of the Year Award from the Trocki Hebrew Academy, and the D.A.R.E. Future of New Jersey Award. [5] In the summer of 2008, Brown ran with the Olympic Torch during the torch relays. [6]
