Mr. Jackson has done really great things financially, as evident in that Cedar Fair is a Fortune 500 company. It is really going to be interesting to see all the different faces in top level management come 2 years from now. And of course, you don't necessarily want someone who has worked at one of the properties for decades. When it comes to finance, you want someone who will be objective and will realistically tell you when you are spending too much money. This is something Jackson has mastered in his tenure, and as a stock holder, I'll definitely miss him.

Yes, it's obvious he has done a great job.
Isn't Kinzel retiring in 2007?
Now does that mean that his last year will be the 2006 season or the 2007 season?

For the record, Cedar Fair is not a Fortune 500 company.
