I think a lot of people already saw this on Facebook yesterday, but this is one of my favorite people in the industry. He was born to run a park.
^Agreed 1000%. The guy simply "gets it." Been to events he ran at (P)KI, Schlitterbahn NB, and SFFT, and never once left without being amazed at his energy, enthusiasm, and skill.
Congrats, Jeff - you totally deserve ALL the success that comes your way!
You still have Zoidberg.... You ALL have Zoidberg! (V) (;,,;) (V)
Knew him when he used to work for Americana (!) and the Cincy Cyclones. As Jeff said, born to run a park.
I think he's always been a favorite of many, and I'm glad for him that he landed this spot.
I remember him from his stint at Kings Island, of course, and his enthusiasm went to a performance level. He was always so welcoming and enjoyable to talk to, and I'm sure that hasn't changed.
He was there for the debut of Son of Beast and I swear, if he knew they had a dog on their hands he never let on. I thought "Well, there's a guy who knows his job."
Congrats to Jeff.
Full disclosure: I'm an ACEr and he fills several roles with the organization.
He is well deserving of this promotion.

Such a nice guy and a great friend! I'm glad his dreams are being fulfilled with his hard work and love for the industry.
Neal is also a super great guy, well deserved promotion. Wish him the best of luck at SFGA, that's a tough park to manage.
