Hotel and casino operator SkyCity Entertainment Group is keeping mum on the reasons behind the departure of one of its key executives.

The dual-listed company yesterday confirmed chief operating officer Stuart Wing had resigned. Stuart and his family had chosen to return to Australia after 18 months "for personal reasons", its communications team said.

He had planned to take leave in May so SkyCity agreed his resignation would take effect immediately.

The departure comes during tumultuous public debate about SkyCity's controversial talks with the Government to build a $350 million national convention centre in Auckland in exchange for gambling concessions.
