Six Flags Entertainment Corp. announced in a filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission Thursday that it has begun a search process to find a successor for James Reid-Anderson, the company’s chairman, president and chief executive officer.
Reid-Anderson informed the company he intends to retire by the end of February 2020.
The Grand Prairie-based company has retained an outside search firm for the process, which is being led by the company’s board of directors. The filing said both internal and external candidates will be evaluated.
Reid-Anderson first took the CEO position at Six Flags (NYSE:SIX) in September 2010 and served in the position until chief financial officer John Duffey was promoted to CEO in February 2016. In July 2017, Duffey abruptly stepped down, and Reid-Anderson again took the reins.
