N9NE Group has confirmed today that Vice President Michael Fuller has left the company, which operates nightclubs Rain, Ghostbar, Moon and Playboy Club and restaurants N9NE Steakhouse and Nove at the Palms.
Fuller long has been a presence in local nightlife, DJing under the name The Funkler, serving as a rave promoter when he was 19 and later working at now-defunct scene staples like Club Utopia and Ice before joining N9NE as director of marketing in 2006.
Fuller later was promoted to VP and was instrumental in bringing new residents to the Palms’ Rain Nightclub, including world-renowned DJs Paul Oakenfold, the late DJ AM and Z-Trip.
N9NE Group has not issued a statement on Fuller’s departure earlier this week, but has confirmed that he is no longer on staff.
