Crown has appointed current Lendlease chief executive Steve McCann as its new CEO and managing director.

Crown’s upper echelon of executives and directors has been in flux since the release of a damning NSW inquiry that laid bare a number of poor practices that linked junkets for high rollers with potential criminal activity.

The chief executive at the time, Ken Barton, was one of the first to go after the report, leaving Chair Helen Coonan as interim chief executive since February.

McCann has experience with Crown, with Lendlease constructing its Sydney development at Barangaroo.
