Cedar Fair Management Change

It would appear as though Jack Falfas has left Cedar Fair Entertainment Company. While there has been no official word from Cedar Fair, his biography has been removed from the corporate website.

Rumors popped up on several industry websites this past weekend, stating that the departure was fairly abrupt. Mr. Falfas was long thought to be Richard Kinzel's replacement after he retires, but those plans never panned out. Kinzel was going to retire previously, but stayed on after the Paramount Purchase. It was also announced that he was staying on board again when the Apollo Management deal was first announced.

Mr. Falfas previously led Knott's Berry Farm for a number of years prior to being promoted to Chief Operating Officer. We're all quite interested to see where he will show up next.
