Daniel J. Taylor has been upped to senior executive VP and chief financial officer at MGM, rising from his previous position as executive VP of corporate finance. He replaces Michael G. Corrigan, who ankled to pursue other opportunities, but will still do some consulting work for MGM.
Taylor began his career at Arthur Andersen LLP and joined MGM in 1985 as VP in the tax department. He left for Kirk Kerkorian’s Tracinda Corp. (the majority owner of MGM) in 1991, but returned to the studio last year as an executive veepee of corporate finance to assist in the company’s initial public offering in November.
“Dan’s long history with MGM and Tracinda is an important asset as we move forward,” said Frank G. Mancuso, MGM’s chairman and chief executive officer. “At the same time, Mike Corrigan’s background and experience as a senior partner at Price Waterhouse proved to be invaluable to MGM.”
