New President At Busch Gardens Williamsburg and Water Country USA
Busch Gardens Williamsburg and Water Country USA have promoted Kevin Lembke to park President.
Lembke began his journey with SeaWorld in 2000 as an area manager. Since then he has had a variety of leadership roles including the Vice President of Merchandise from 2013-2016 at Busch Gardens Williamsburg and most recently the Vice President of Culinary Operations at Busch Gardens Tampa. Lembke graduated from the University of Buffalo and plans to relocate to Virginia with his wife and four children.
“Kevin is an entrepreneurial leader with both park support center and park experience,” said John Reilly, chief operating officer for SeaWorld Parks & Entertainment. “He has achieved a strong record of financial performance and guest satisfaction results.”
Lembke is taking over for David Cromwell who has been with SeaWorld since 1997 and has served as the President since 2016. Cromwell is stepping down to pursue an opportunity with a sports franchise.
“David has had an impeccable career with our company. His leadership has helped guide the Williamsburg theme parks into premier local and tourist destinations,” Reilly said. “We wish David all the best and thank him for his many years of service and accomplishments with the company.”
