Dale Kaetzel has been named Six Flags Discovery Kingdom's new park president, replacing Eric Gilbert, who is no longer with the company, park officials announced. During Kaetzel's eight years as a senior executive in four of five Paramount Parks, he was senior vice president and general manager of Canada's Wonderland.
Read more from The Times-Herald via The Contra Costa Times.
I guess Six Flags' new CEO doesn't have kids to appoint in these positions. The talent bleed of Cedar Fair is Six Flags' gain.
Were most of these park managers that have been replaced around from the Burke era? I know SFMM's GM came from SFKK in the Burke era, and has since moved to the corporate office.
But what about the others? Looks like the new CEO is looking out for his old teammates.
Am I the only one who saw the name Dale Kaetzel and thought it was some bizarro world version of Dick Kinzel?
Kaetzel Number ONE!
Boy Jeff...you said a lot in a couple of short sentences.Last edited by wahoo skipper, Tuesday, September 14, 2010 8:09 AM
Anyone know where the former SFDK GM went? Article doesn't mention anything so assuming he's no longer with the company.
The first sentence of the article says he's no longer with the company.
Eric Gilbert goes back to the Time-Warner days. He started at Six Flags Over Texas in 1990. It's a shame they just let him go. Hopefully he will surface somewhere else in the industry.
