Hughes announced in August that would step down after four years at the helm of the six-block, downtown entertainment district.

"There is an unprecedented level of excitement at Fremont Street Experience with the $32 million upgrade in Viva Vision, the upcoming opening of Circa Resort & Casino and the milestone celebration of our 25th anniversary this December," Simon said. "I look forward to working with my exceptional team and our partners."

Simon has served as CEO of sports for Mark Cuban's AXS TV since 2007. He created the AXS TV Fights brand, which broadcast the first live sporting event from Fremont Street Experience. He also worked for Cox Communications in Las Vegas as vice president of marketing and sales, Cox Business Services and Hospitality Network, NXTV and Deloitte.
