Holiday World & Splashin' Safari has named Matt Eckert president and CEO. Eckert, a staff member since 2000, previously was general manager. He grew up near the park, which is in Santa Claus, Indiana, and visited each summer as a guest. "The park has been on a tremendous ride the past few years in terms of expansion and guest visitation. That is definitely something I want to see continue," he said. Eckert also is a former member of the human resources committee of the International Association of Amusement Parks and Attractions, and his advice on best practices often is sought by others in the industry.
