Posted Wednesday, February 18, 2015 8:46 AM | Contributed by Jeff

In the midst of searching for a new chief executive officer, SeaWorld Entertainment earlier this month announced a shuffling of top management roles. SeaWorld gave company veteran Dan Brown oversight of all its theme park operations while moving Terry Prather, president of its Orlando attractions, into a new senior vice president role. Such a management change before bringing in a new CEO is fairly unusual, analysts say, but the company might not have wanted to wait as it faces the challenge of finding a new leader.

I know who I would approach, but he's in a good spot and likely has a contract.

The name Terry Prather sounds familiar. Is this the guy who was GM at SFA about a dozen years ago?

Terry Prather spent some time working his way through the SF parks. I'm pretty sure he was the GM at SFNO in 2005 when the park last operated.
