Mitch Keenan

Vice President, Business Development

Mitch Keenan grew up in Seattle, WA. After visiting Las Vegas as a teen, he decided on UNLV for his university experience. He quickly fell in love with the sunshine and everything UNLV had to offer. By his senior year, he met the love of his life in the Hospitality School, and the two have been together ever since.

Upon graduating with a Bachelor’s in Casino Management, Mitch was able to turn his Senior Year internship into a full-time opportunity. Quickly becoming a Casino Marketing Manager, it was a thrilling experience to be a part of a new property opening in Downtown Las Vegas. But, after getting married and starting a family, he wanted a change of pace

Throughout Mitch’s career, he has served major media organizations, worked for his Alma Mater UNLV, and most recently was a National Business Development Director partnering with higher education institutions, Non-Profits, and Healthcare groups all throughout the US. Mitch is excited to use his talents to serve the city and help contribute to the great work LVGEA is already accomplishing.

Mitch and his wife, Rebecca, now have two spunky daughters that keep them both very busy! They all enjoy cheering for the Raiders, Vegas Golden Knights, Las Vegas Aviators, and taking advantage of our region’s beautiful parks and trails.
