Shapiro Resigns from Six Flags

From the Associated Press

NEW YORK (AP) — Six Flags Entertainment Corp., which emerged from bankruptcy protection earlier this month, said Wednesday that President and CEO Mark Shapiro is no longer with the company.

The theme park operator provided no further details on Shapiro's departure and named Alexander Weber Jr. as president and interim CEO.

Weber previously served as president and CEO of Paramount Parks Inc.

Six Flags said it has hired an executive search firm to find a permanent CEO and will consider both internal and external candidates.

The company sought bankruptcy protection in June, weighed down by high debt and declining park attendance.
