Management musical chairs at Busch Gardens/SeaWorld

Published: November 1, 2007 at 7:13 PM

Okay, last week Busch Entertainment Corporation announced it was moving its HQ from the brewery's mothership near St. Louis to the Land of Theme Parks, Orlando. Fla. As part of the move BEC Prez Keith M. Kasen stayed in St. Louis, moving upstairs to "Chairman," leaving the BEC presidency for SeaWorld Orlando chief Jim Atchison.

Now, to replace Atchison, Busch is moving Busch Gardens Africa GM Daniel Brown to Orlando. And to replace Brown, Busch is moving Busch Gardens Europe GM Donnie Mills to Tampa. That leaves the Williamsburg job open.. for now.

Update: (11/08):Busch announced today that John T. Reilly, Corporate Vice-President of Merchandising, will become the Executive Vice-President and General Manager of Busch Gardens Europe.
