Board of Directors
The men and women who call the shots.

The Mob Museum boasts a highly respected board of directors including professionals from local and state government, law enforcement, the judicial system, media and the business community.

The 501 (c) 3 non-profit governing board is headed by Ellen Knowlton, former FBI Special Agent in Charge, Las Vegas Division, and a 24-year FBI veteran. A key Mob Museum visionary is board member and previous Las Vegas Mayor Oscar B. Goodman, who once made a name for himself representing such reputed mobsters as Meyer Lansky, Frank “Lefty” Rosenthal and Anthony Spilotro, among others. Many of these individuals have first-hand knowledge of organized crime and its impact on Las Vegas and society.
