SeaWorld CEO, Jim Atchison, on the Benefits of Private Equity

In a recent video, SeaWorld Park and Entertainment CEO, Jim Atchison, highlights the growth his company has seen since partnering with private equity firm Blackstone. In addition to adding thousands of additional jobs within the past few years, Atchison says that SeaWorld saw record performance last year and is expecting the same this year.

“There’s a great dynamic at play here, in addition to all the wisdom of how to stand up this company,” says Atchison. “But [also] smart investing, sensible capital and getting great returns on it. And really a great example of how an economic impact can be made with investment like private equity through Blackstone.”
