IAAPA management transitions

The International Association of Amusement Parks and Attractions (IAAPA) has announced the departure of Richard M. Jackson as vice president North American Operations. His position has been filled by Karen Staley, formerly senior vice president of IAAPA EMEA (Europe, Middle East, and Africa) Operations. In addition, Jakob Wahl, who recently rejoined the IAAPA EMEA office, will succeed Staley as vice president of EMEA Operations.

IAAPA president and CEO Paul Noland commented: “During his tenure, Richard had a significant impact on the growth of our member base and enhanced the association’s focus of providing outstanding service to our members throughout North America… Karen’s strategic vision, including the execution of our annual Euro Attractions Show (EAS), has significantly enhanced IAAPA’s global presence and will be invaluable as we take our North American operations to the next level.”
