Sol Kerzner will remain as chairman of the company and will work closely with Leibman on the overall corporate strategy and planned growth of the Atlantis and One&Only brands worldwide.
“Over the last 17 years Alan has contributed extensively to Kerzner’s success, and his vast experience in this industry makes him an ideal CEO to lead Kerzner into the future,” said Kerzner in a written release. “Alan has a great deal of passion and commitment to both our employees and our guests. As CEO, Alan will lead the executive management team and will be actively engaged in all aspects of the business. I firmly believe this new organizational structure and focus will best ensure the future success and growth of Kerzner International.”
Leibman joined Kerzner in 1994, and has held positions of strategic importance, including chief operating officer of Atlantis, Paradise Island in The Bahamas.
“I am truly pleased to take on this new role as CEO at this exciting time in the company’s history,” said Leibman in written release. “I have been fortunate enough to have learned and developed under Sol’s leadership for the past 17 years and couldn't have asked for a better mentor. I plan to continue executing on the same distinct entrepreneurial vision and spirit that he instilled in the company."
