Schorr’s experience in the hotel and casino business started at a young age. From 1991 to 1999 Schorr worked in various departments at the Golden Nugget Laughlin, Treasure Island Hotel & Casino and Mirage Hotel & Casino. From Human Resources to Casino Marketing, Schorr was exposed to all aspects of the casino business and has always referenced this experience throughout his career.
Schorr graduated from the University of Pennsylvania in 1999, having majored in Chinese studies. After graduation, Schorr worked at Bellagio Resort and Casino as an executive in the Casino Marketing Department. In 2000, Schorr left Bellagio to work for Wynn Resorts. At Wynn Resorts, Schorr served as Director of Interactive Gaming. Schorr’s responsibility was to develop an online gaming strategy under the Wynn brand. Due to legislative restrictions the project was put on hold in 2002. In 2002, Schorr was entrusted to develop The Wynn Collection of Fine Art, a $500 Million collection of Impressionist pieces. Schorr was responsible for constructing the gallery, securing the paintings, creating a retail outlet and marketing to the public. In 2003, Schorr moved to Macau, China as a key member of the Wynn Macau development team. As Director of International Marketing Schorr was responsible for understanding the Asian market, establishing regional offices throughout Asia and building relationships within the local Macau community.
In 2004, Schorr took a sabbatical from the casino industry and entered the world of financial services in New York City. Schorr, along with his partner Charles Ginsberg, created SMS Group. SMS is an asset recovery firm whose clients include Hong Kong Shanghai Banking Corporation, Chase, Citibank, Wells Fargo, American Transfer and Trust Company, The Coca-Cola company, and Compass Bank, to name a few. Schorr was directly responsible for the formation of SMS from the ground up. Schorr hired all personnel, oversaw the development of SMS’s customer relationship management systems, established a genealogical research office in Salt Lake City, Utah, created the brand and corporate identity and lead the marketing and sales effort of the company.
In late 2006, Schorr sold his interest in SMS Group and returned to his hometown of Las Vegas to continue his career in the casino industry.
Schorr and his wife, Lacy have strong roots in the community. They are the proud parents of Dax and Mia.
