ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) -- SeaWorld Entertainment's chief executive has resigned only five months into his job, becoming the third leader of the theme park company to depart in just over two years.
A Monday filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission shows that Sergio Rivera cited his disagreement with the board's involvement in decision-making at the company. His predecessor, Gustavo "Gus" Antorcha, cited a similar reason for his leaving last September.
Rivera handed in his resignation on Saturday.
The spreading novel coronavirus has paralyzed the theme park industry and SeaWorld has furloughed 90% of its workers.
