Knott's Berry Farm announced today that it has hired former Disneyland VP Jon Storbeck as the new Vice President and General Manager of the park. Storbeck worked more than 30 years for Disney, before "retiring" last year.

Storbeck replaces Raffi Kaprelyan, who has moved up to Regional Vice President of Cedar Fair. Cedar Fair CEO Matt Ouimet is also a former Disneyland executive, having been President of the park before leaving to Starwood and then to Cedar Fair.
