Denise Godreau is leaving her position as chief marketing officer, effective immediately.
An internal memo published Monday as part of a regulatory filing revealed Godreau’s departure.
Interim CEO John Reilly wrote that the decision comes as the company focuses on the execution of its new marketing strategy.
“We have added new leadership in digital marketing and changed our agencies to further strengthen our existing, highly capable marketing and communications teams company-wide,” Reilly wrote.
Godreau joined the company in 2017 and previously served as a senior executive at Disney Parks for more than a decade.
Her departure comes nearly a month after Joel Manby stepped down as CEO on Feb. 27. The same day, SeaWorld reported net losses of over $200 million for 2017.
Other executives who have resigned from SeaWorld include Anthony Esparza, who served as the company’s chief creative officer and Brian Morrow, who was the vice president of theme park experience and design. Their departures were announced within days of Manby’s.
SeaWorld has faced declining revenue and attendance since the release of the 2013 documentary “Blackfish.”
