Lance over at ScreamScape is reporting that several general managers from various SixFlags parks are being shuffled around to accommodate a promotion of SFMM's GM, Bonnie Sherman Weber, to Senior Vice President of In-Park Services.
ScreamScape.com said:(1/5/18) Six Flags seems to be in the process of changing some of the upper management at some of their parks this week. I'm told that Phil Liggett who was Park President of La Ronde has now been shifted to take over the Park President spot at Six Flags St. Louis as of this week. On a side note, I'm not sure who Phil Liggett replaced at SFSL, or where they went, nor did I see an announcement about who will take over as Park President of La Ronde.
Meanwhile on the west coast, Six Flags Magic Mountain President, Bonnie Sherman Weber has been promoted to the Six Flags corporate office in Texas and will serve as the Senior VP of In-Park Services. Replacing Bonnie at SFMM will be Neal Thurman, who previously served as Park President of the Six Flags Great Adventure parks and before that spent some time as President of Six Flags Fiesta Texas, but this is a homecoming for Neal who served as the Director of Operations at Six Flags Magic Mountain for seven years, starting back in 2007, so he is very familiar and has had a long history with The Mountain. He has also worked at Six Flags parks in Georgia, Kentucky, and St. Louis during his long career with the company. No word on who is replacing Thurman as Park President at SFGAdv as of yet.
Congrats to everyone!
SourceScreamScape.com said:(1/9/18) More management shuffle news is coming from the Six Flags theme parks this week, answering some of the questions we had following last week’s promotions and shuffles. For example John Winkler will take over as Park President of Six Flags Great Adventure, moving over from his current position as President of Six Flags New England where he served for the past 6 years. Winkler is no stranger to the New Jersey property though, as he served there as a Director and Co-GM for 7 years, starting in 2001. (note: he also served as Park President of Six Flags America from 2009 to 2011 before going to the New England park)
I’m also told through the grapevine that Pete Carmichael (Park President of SF St. Louis) is also “heading home” to take over the top spot at Six Flags New England. Before being promoted to President of the St. Louis park, he served as Dir. of Operations at SFNE).
Meanwhile I’m told that La Ronde’s new park president is someone being promoted up [from within].
