Welcome Holiday World’s New CEO

Holiday World recently issued a press release naming longtime employee Matt Eckert as the park’s new president and CEO.

Eckert wasn’t chosen at random:

“Matt was hand-picked by my late husband, Will, to be in a leadership role at the park; I know he would be pleased with our choice,” says park vice president Lori Koch. “As president and CEO, Matt will work closely with our board to keep our family’s park flourishing.”

Eckert’s career at Holiday World spans over a decade:

“Eckert began his tenure with the park in 2000, when he was hired to be the park’s controller; he served as one of the park’s two general managers from 2007 to 2012. He is an International Association of Amusement Parks & Attractions Certified Attractions Executive and has served on its Human Resources Committee.”

Dan Koch, who temporarily filled the position left open by his late brother, Will, is returning to work at his law firm in Florida.

We wish Matt Eckert the best of luck with his new role at Holiday World. We can’t wait to see what he has in store for us in the coming years.
