ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) - Two veteran SeaWorld executives are leaving their jobs, and two other veterans are taking their places.

SeaWorld Entertainment Inc. announced Friday that chief parks operations officer Daniel Brown is retiring, and Brad Andrews is stepping down as chief zoological officer.

Brown’s retirement takes effect in April, and Andrews will take on an emeritus role.

John Reilly, currently president of SeaWorld San Diego, will become the company’s new chief parks operations officer, and vice president of veterinary services Chris Dold will be the new chief zoological officer.

SeaWorld has been in the crosshairs of animal rights activists since the release of the documentary “Blackfish.” The movie chronicled the whale that caused the death of trainer Dawn Brancheau in 2010.
