Busch Entertainment Corporation, the arm of the Anheuser-Busch Companies that runs the company's theme parks, has announced that it will move from A-B headquarters in St. Louis, Mo. to new digs in Orlando, home to the company's largest park, SeaWorld Orlando.
Busch reported in a press release that the move is to be completed by July 2008, but that a specific new location has not yet been determined. (Commercial real estate agents in Central Florida: Start your Escalades!)
The move means a change in personnel, too. Current theme parks president Keith M. Kasen is staying behind in St. Louis, taking a new gig as chairman of Busch Entertainment Corp. SeaWorld Orlando GM Jim Atchison gets the promotion to president and Chief Operating Officer.
