The next five
In order to rank the 50 most powerful people in Asian gaming, the panel considered almost 100 candidates. These five are the people knocking on the door of the Power 50 and those we currently consider the most likely new entrants next year. Although we did rank these five people 51 through 55, we’ve listed them below in alphabetical order. You’ll just have to guess who came in at number 51!

Name Title Organization
ALFREDO “ALBEE” BENITEZ FOUNDER Leisure & Resorts World Corp
THOMAS PANG CHAIRMAN Meg-Star Group
HARUKI SATOMI PRESIDENT AND GROUP CEO Sega Sammy Holdings
KIM YOUNG-SAN CHIEF EXECUTIVE OFFICER Grand Korea Leisure
ALLAN ZEMAN CHAIRMAN AND INDEPENDENT NON-EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR Wynn Macau Ltd

Ones to watch
Aside from the 50 people that made our final list and the many others we considered, a handful stood out as particularly worthy of mention. These are the people whose star is on the rise, are in a company worth keeping an eye on or in some cases have very much remained in the news in recent months.
