SeaWorld CEO Resigns After 5 Months In Position
SeaWorld is searching for a CEO, again. Sergio Rivera resigned after holding the job for only 5 months.
His resignation makes this the fourth turnover in leadership in the last 3 years. His predecessor, Gustavo "Gus" Antorcha, resigned in September 2019 after serving only 7 months as CEO.
Marc Swanson, Chief Financial Officer at SeaWorld, will once again step in as Interim CEO.
The leadership shakeup comes as SeaWorld furloughed more than 90% of its employees amid the coronavirus pandemic. SeaWorld Entertainment operates multiple theme parks, including SeaWorld Orlando and Aquatica.
