Drawing on his 25+ years of experience as CEO of major corporations in multiple industries, Mr. Manby assists CEOs and boards in transforming their organization’s business performance and culture through a set of proven processes and tools.
Previously, Mr. Manby was the President, CEO, and Director of SeaWorld Parks and Entertainment. He stepped in when SeaWorld was mired in a brand crisis which caused sales and profits to plummet. Mr. Manby reset SeaWorld’s vision and guest experience, turning around sales and cash flow while improving the culture, employee engagement, and customer satisfaction scores.
For over a decade, he served as the President and CEO of Herschend Family Enterprises, which operated internationally respected brands such as the Harlem Globetrotters and Dolly Parton’s Dollywood Parks and Resorts. During this time, he developed the seven behaviors of the verb, love, which defined Herschend’s caring culture and inspired his book.
Prior to Herschend, Mr. Manby spent 20 years in the auto industry and served as CEO of Saab Automobile during Saab’s U.S. turn around.
Mr. Manby authored “Love Works. Seven Timeless Principles for Effective Leaders,” detailing how to integrate love, the verb, into the leadership ethos and philosophy of any organization. Love Works has sold over 100,000 copies.
